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, including:

  • Divorce
  • 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.
