Benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution
There are many benefits of resolving disputes through mediation, including:
- Cost effective: Typically, resolving disputes through mediation takes far less time and money than resolving the same disputes through trial.
- Stress reduction: By working with a smaller group of people, the stress of sitting in court before lawyers and a judge is alleviated. Mediations are often completed in a more formal, relaxed atmosphere.
- Personal stake: Many clients appreciate the fact that they were directly responsible for the outcome of their mediations. It is easier to accept a judgment if you had a hand in the decision rather than if a decision was handed down from a judge with little to no input from you.
While mediation is a cost-efficient way to complete your divorce proceedings, it is important that the choice of mediator is made by both parties. You need to find a mediator you trust and who can help you. Our lawyers have gained a reputation as skilled mediators and excellent negotiators. Do not hesitate to contact our firm.
Avoiding Courtroom Litigation Through Mediation
Many conflicts in a divorce can quickly become adversarial. Typically, disputes around child support, child custody or property division can send a divorce proceeding into a downward spiral. The best way to settle these types of disputes is by working through mediation. Mediation is an informal process by which each party can discuss issues and possible solutions with a neutral third party. Our firm has a great deal of experience guiding clients through this process to reach a resolution in a quick and cost-effective manner.
