Mediation is another way to settle family law matters through collaboration and cooperation. In mediation, an unbiased third party, the mediator, helps you and your spouse find mutually beneficial ways to settle your divorce or other family law matters.
If you are interested in resolving your differences without the financial costs and the emotional stress of a trial, mediation may be the answer. At Koiles Pratt Family Law Group, we are skilled and trained in mediation and assist many clients in finding ways to settle family legal matters amicably.
Benefits of Mediation:
There are many benefits to mediation including:
- Reduced cost: The cost is often less than half the cost of taking a family law matter to court.
- More control over the outcome: You get to participate in formulating the solutions, rather than leaving them to the discretion of a judge.
- Less delay: Mediation generally takes less time, as you no longer have to find available time on the court’s docket.
- Less stress: Mediated settlements are formed cooperatively, so you avoid the stress and anxiety common in an adversarial environment
