Many people involved in a family law dispute choose mediation, as it is a private and respectful way to negotiate.
Mediation is a voluntary dispute resolution process where the parties are assisted by a trained mediator, who acts as a neutral third party. The mediator facilitates the conversation between the parties and helps to guide them through the negotiation of an agreement. The mediator uses interest-based negotiation to help the parties identify their needs, and understand the other person’s needs better in order to reach a workable agreement that fits both people’s needs.
The process is non-binding and the authority to make decisions remains with the parties. In mediation, issues can be resolved in a flexible and creative manner and in a respectful environment.
