Traditional family litigation is expensive, stressful and time consuming. Most families going through child custody matters, divorce, or other challenging family situations benefit from attempting to resolve their disputes out of court with the help of a professional – either a mediator through the mediation process or with the help of an attorney in the collaborative divorce process.
Some of the most commonly addressed issues in mediation are:
- Child Custody
- Division of property and debt
- Child support
- Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)
- Parenting decisions
- Modifications to parenting plans
- Modifications of child support
Mediation is a wonderful tool for many families as it avoids the burdens of litigation when successful at a much lower cost. Even when the issues are not fully resolved at the mediation itself, it is not uncommon for the parties to either reach a resolution not long after the mediation has ended or to have reduced the scope of the dispute substantially.
