Conflict is inevitable.
Many times disputes can be resolved without utilizing outside assistance. But in other cases, such as divorce or neighbor disputes, tensions can escalate without resolution.
Often a judge must decide who wins and who loses. Having a stranger decide your future can make you feel as though you have lost all control over your life.
Mediation has been shown to be an excellent alternative to costly litigation. In mediation, the interests and wishes of all parties are equally considered and the parties involved make their own decisions. A mediator does not give legal advice or therapy. The mediator makes no attempt to control the outcome, but remains a neutral third party who helps the disputing parties come to a resolution.
A resolution is often possible in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of courtroom litigation. After an agreement is reached between the contesting parties in mediation, a qualified attorney writes the legal documents and presents them to the judge. The judge makes the declaration and the matter is resolved.
Mediation is often the best course of action in disputes involving:
- Child Custody/Visitation
- Neighborhood disputes
- Victim/Offender situations
- Adult Guardianship
- Elder care
- Religious/church issues
- Sibling to sibling
- Many others...
A trained mediator can help you successfully navigate all the issues involved so that you and the ones with whom you are in disagreement can resolve your conflict and create a foundation for a healthy future relationship.
