Is Family Law Mediation The Path For Your Divorce Or Custody Matter?

One of the aspects of divorce that many people rightfully dread is the idea of airing private family business in divorce court. This painful, expensive process can be largely avoided when divorcing spouses arrive at their own divorce settlements outside of court. Settlement negotiations sometimes accomplish this goal, but there are often major points of disagreement that make this option ineffective. Couples who want to avoid a full-blown court trial often turn to mediation to resolve disputes.

  • Want to resolve your legal issues in a more timely manner
  • Want to save time and money
  • Want to avoid having a Family Court judge decide the terms of your divorce
  • Prefer to keep family matters more private
