Mediation Services May Help You Avoid The Courtroom

Mediation is a voluntary process in which both parties jointly make decisions based on their views and the reality they face. A mediator facilitates discussions, but does not give advice or make decisions. He or she uses non-adversarial problem-solving techniques to reach an agreement.

Mediation Benefits:

  • Parties can set their own pace and are not restricted by a court calendar
  • Stay out of court- both parties reach an agreement outside of the courtroom
  • Create solutions that fit the family best- parties have the opportunity to craft solutions, a freedom which is not allowed in court
  • Confidentiality- mediation sessions are private
