Understanding the goals of divorce mediation

Regardless of the stage through which one is in while obtaining a divorce, it is important to understand the options available to obtain a final resolution. Traditional options include each party working through attorneys to negotiate terms for settlement, or presenting their case to court.  Alternatively, the parties could explore settlement through divorce mediation.

What makes mediation an effective alternative to traditional methods of divorce resolution? In certain cases, mediation can significantly save time and money while simultaneously preserving privacy.  Traditional avenues through which to resolve the differences between the parties would rely upon court intervention, which often causes added stress and hostility between the parties.  Not every case requires such hostility, and more frequently cases can even be resolved amicably and in less time than the court can allow.

Mediation exists to reduce stress and enable the parties to openly discuss resolution with the goal of producing a legally binding agreement for settlement.  Ultimately, mediation can save time and money as compared to lengthy and often expensive route of court litigation.

Unlike traditional methods for divorce, mediation relies upon collaboration and compromise between the parties to efficiently and effectively reach settlement.  The benefits of mediation through the guidance of an experienced family law attorney offer substantial financial savings and time efficiency over traditional methods of divorce resolution.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
