Domestic Relations Mediation
Mediation is an opportunity for two people with differences to come together and make a decision about the outcome of their case. Mediation can be voluntary or court- ordered. Mediation works best if both parties are agreeable to the idea and come to the table focused on settling.
As in any legal matter, preparation is essential. You should go into mediation with a full understanding of the topics that need to be discussed and decided, and an idea of what you would like to see as a result. People often enter mediation with the doubt it will work, but quickly realize it is a good process. Although both parties may have the same goal, the challenge is that they often have a very different idea about how to get there. An effective mediator can create a safe and controlled environment where everyone has the opportunity to speak and be heard. We believe mediation is particularly valuable in family law cases where tensions are high and keeping the peace is important. We will help you and your family benefit from an amicable resolution.
