Any kind of dispute can have a serious impact on your life if not handled properly. It can lead to escalated conflict followed by the need for courtroom litigation. The time, expense, and stress of a trial can be steep, furthering your anxiety and frustration.
These disputes can involve such issues as:
- Divorce, marital property and debt division, child custody and visitation, child support, alimony, relocation with a minor child, and any other divorce-related matter
- Separation agreements
- Grandparents’ rights to access of grandchildren
- Disputes involving international couples
- Disputes involving same-sex partners
- Estate matters, including probate and the administration of trusts
- Real estate, including conflict between neighbors, buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants, joint property owners, condominium owners, home associations and property owners, and anyone else involved in real property
Mediation can resolve these disputes with the help of the neutral mediator who has been trained to facilitate negotiation through the tactics and skills of this alternative dispute resolution method. Our mediation attorney has decades of legal representation in which even the most contentious issues were successfully handled in this way.
The advantages of negotiation through mediation include:
- Its privacy; you and the other side meet with the mediator in a private setting
- Its confidentiality; no one outside you, the other party, and the mediator have access to your discussions
- Its speed; you can resolve your issue faster due to the absence of litigation and court calendars
- Its control; you are directly involved in the process and not subjected to the dictates of a judge
- Its avoidance of further conflict; it spares you the emotional stress of a trial
- Its reduced expenses due to remaining outside of litigation
- The positive quality of learning to find common ground with the other party which is vitally important for those who must work together as divorced parents, family members, business partners, property owners, and more
