Mediation is appropriate for anyone in conflict, regardless of the issues in dispute and the level of conflict. We regularly work with parties to resolve issues such as custody, parenting, support, division of assets and liabilities. High conflict couples can also attend mediation but particular safeguards need to be in place for parties with a history of domestic violence so the mediator should be advised of that history in advance.
Mediation is not appropriate for a dispute involving a party that is concealing information.
Mediation is a dispute resolution process in which disputing parties work with an impartial and neutral third party (the mediator) in order to resolve their disagreement.
Mediation sessions occur in a boardroom, usually at the office of the mediator. Both parties to the dispute and the mediator attend each session. The parties are free to attend with legal counsel if they wish.
Mediation is appropriate at any stage of a dispute. Attending mediation to resolve your disagreement as soon as possible upon separation can avoid a lengthy and expensive legal battle but attending in the midst of a legal dispute can end the dispute without incurring the additional legal fees associated with trial or a continuing legal battle.
There are numerous advantages of achieving a resolution through mediation, including:
