Resolving Your Divorce Through Mediation
Under the right circumstances, pursuing an out-of-court resolution to a family law matter can lead to a better outcome. Brazill Hester PC offers mediation services for divorce, paternity and other family law cases.
Mediation can be much less stressful and expensive than court because of its informal nature and its focus on the specific needs and desires of the parties involved, rather than strict application of the law in a courtroom setting.
A Nonadversarial Approach
When couples choose to utilize mediation, no one needs to worry about courtroom drama or the naturally adversarial nature of the legal process, which often leaves wounds that do not heal quickly and makes moving forward that much more difficult. The mediator works to facilitate an agreement between the parties, exploring different options available to help them reach a compromise, but the mediator does not make any decisions.
Mediation gives participants much more control over the outcome and allows the parties to design an agreement that is much more customized than a court would be able to provide. Instead of an adversarial approach that pits the parties against one another, they can work together to reach a mutually beneficial solution.
Utilizing mediation can be especially helpful when children are involved, including reaching an agreement for matters related to custody and support. During mediation, parents can identify issues to work through and start developing the skills needed to successfully co-parent.
