How Does Mediation Work?
Mediation is a type of alternative dispute resolution that allows couples
or families to handle their disagreement without going to trial. The mediation
process allows each party to work through their disagreements on their
own terms, with the help of their respective lawyers and an unbiased mediator.
The mediator will offer support and suggestions to help both parties work
together to find a fair, workable solution that benefits each side. Mediation
is a reliable legal process and will end with some type of binding legal
contract, depending on the sort of legal issue at hand.
There are several different types of disputes mediation can help with,
- Spousal support modifications
- Child support modifications
- Legal separation
- Child custody disputes
- Visitation issues
The Benefits of Mediation
Not only is mediation a more private way to resolve legal issues, it is
also more affordable and less time-consuming. Traditional litigation usually
takes more time because of complicated court schedules and long waiting
lists. However, mediation meetings depend only on the schedules of either
party, their lawyers, and the mediator. Moreover, if all parties are able
to negotiate quickly, the entire ordeal can be handled swiftly, which
will cost each party less money in legal fees. Mediation also allows families
to find the best possible resolution for their situation, which makes
the entire legal process much more customizable than it typically would
be in court.
If you are going through a divorce, child custody dispute, or another type
of family law issue, consider whether or not mediation might be the best
choice for you. Our experienced attorneys at Owenby Law, P.A. can work
with you throughout the mediation process, representing your interests
and negotiating on your behalf.
