Understanding The Benefits Of Mediating Your Family Law Matter
The adversarial court process is often ill-suited for resolving disputes among spouses going through divorce or family law proceedings.
Litigation can potentially, tragically and irretrievably destroy the ability of either parent to maintain a civil relationship after the divorce, which is essential if children are involved.
More About How Mediation Is An Option To Resolving Your Family Law Matter
Family law mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method, known as ADR.
Mediation allows you and your spouse or your partner to resolve issues such as child custody, child visitation, property settlement, and equitable distribution of property or division of marital assets and debt while never getting near a judge or having to go through divorce litigation.
An impartial third-party divorce mediator if involved helps guide parties through the process of reaching an agreement together, outside of court.
Benefits Of Using Mediation
People who utilize family law mediation, as opposed to litigation, often get divorced faster. The process is also more cost-effectively.
Through mediation, the spouses have a willingness to negotiate and compromise on issues involving their divorce. This negotiation often makes the relationship between the parents post-divorce more amicable, particularly if children are involved.
Also, a husband and wife or partners who resolve their family law matter via mediation will not have to share their personal family matters in a court of law. It is entirely private.
