What is Mediation?

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that allows parties to resolve their legal disputes outside of court. In mediation, a neutral third party, known as the mediator, helps the parties work together to reach a mutually agreeable solution to their dispute.

Mediation is a voluntary process, meaning that the parties must agree to participate. Additionally, the mediator does not have the power to make decisions for the parties. Instead, the mediator helps the parties communicate and work together to reach a resolution that is acceptable to all involved.

Mediation is a highly effective method of resolving legal disputes, particularly in family law matters. It is often less contentious and more amicable than litigation, and it allows the parties to maintain more control over the outcome of their case.

What are the Benefits of Mediation?

Mediation offers several benefits over traditional litigation. For one, it is generally much faster and more efficient than going to court. Mediation can be scheduled at the convenience of the parties, and it can often be completed in just a few sessions. This is in stark contrast to litigation, which can take months or even years to resolve.

Mediation is also typically much less expensive than litigation. When you go to court, you will need to pay for court fees, attorney fees, and other costs. In mediation, you will only need to pay for the mediator’s fees, which are often much more affordable than the costs associated with litigation.

Mediation is also less stressful than going to court. In mediation, the parties are encouraged to work together to reach a resolution. This can help reduce the tension and animosity that is often present in litigation. Additionally, mediation is a private process, meaning that the details of your case will not be made public.

Finally, mediation allows the parties to maintain more control over the outcome of their case. In litigation, the judge will make the final decision in your case. In mediation, the parties have the power to make decisions for themselves. This can help ensure that the outcome is fair and reasonable to all involved.

What Types of Cases Can Be Mediated?

Mediation can be used to resolve a wide range of legal disputes. At Owenby Law, P.A., we offer mediation services for the following types of cases:

  • Divorce and Separation: Mediation helps couples navigate the terms of their divorce or separation, including division of assets, child custody, visitation schedules, and spousal support.
  • Child Custody and Visitation: Parents in dispute over custody arrangements or visitation schedules can use mediation to create a plan that prioritizes the child's well-being.
  • Parenting Plans: Mediation assists parents in creating comprehensive parenting plans that outline responsibilities, decision-making processes, and parenting schedules after divorce or separation.
  • Alimony or Spousal Support: Mediation can help spouses negotiate and agree upon the terms of financial support post-divorce.
  • Property Division: Couples can use mediation to fairly divide assets and debts acquired during the marriage, avoiding the often adversarial nature of court proceedings.
  • Elder Care Issues: Mediation can help resolve conflicts arising from care decisions, inheritance disputes, or conflicts between family members concerning elderly relatives.
  • Family Business Disputes: In cases where family-owned businesses are involved, mediation can help resolve conflicts over management, ownership, or succession planning.

Our mediators have extensive experience in these areas of law and can help you explore your options and work toward a resolution.
