Domestic Matters

If you are contemplating a divorce or have filed one already, you may want to consider mediation to reach a temporary or final settlement. Most people find that they are more satisfied with the outcome of their case when they reach an agreement rather than having a judge or arbitrator decide for them. Additionally, an agreement can be more creative than the typical order given by a judge. It can therefore be better suited to your family’s unique situations. Possibly the the biggest advantage is avoiding the stress and cost of contested hearings in court.

Civil Matters

Like in divorce cases, a mediation agreement can be the most beneficial way to settle your civil lawsuit or other dispute. It may help you avoid court altogether. If your conflict involves a neighbor, family member or member of your business or other community, chances are you will want to reach an amicable solution. Using a mediator to settle your case can even broaden your understanding of the other party and the subject matter involved.
