The Benefits of Family Law Mediation
This dispute-resolution process is much quicker and cheaper than litigation, and it allows the parties themselves to be in control of the outcome of their dispute, in an informal and laid-back atmosphere, rather than leaving the outcome to a judge, jury or arbitrator. This process allows the parties to complete and agree upon a creative and detailed solution to their problem or dispute which does not make one party a total “winner” and the other party a total “loser.”
Mediation requires the parties to make an informed, consensual and durable agreement, which is especially important in family law matters where the parties will have an ongoing relationship. The mediation process is completely confidential and, if the process is not successful, parties retain all of their legal rights in the litigation or trial proceeding, and the mediator cannot be called to testify in court. Mediation is available prior to filing any lawsuit; if a lawsuit is filed and pending, most Judges and Chancellors require formal Rule 31 Mediation prior to a full trial of the matter, unless excused for a legally valid reason.
