What Is Mediation?
If you find yourself involved in any type of family-related dispute, you might be wondering how the matter will ever be resolved. You might also be skeptical of the cost of hiring an attorney or the stressful process of trial.
The good news is that you can avoid the high cost of litigation and the high-tension litigation process by engaging in an alternate form of dispute resolution: Mediation.
Mediation is a negotiation process between the involved parties that is facilitated by a neutral third party. In mediation, this neutral third party does not have any decision-making abilities, rather they are there to help the parties address their needs and work together to compromise on a solution. After mediation, which can last several hours, an agreement can be made and become enforceable. If the parties were unable to come to an agreement after mediation, they can pursue a different form of dispute resolution.
When to Choose Mediation
Mediation is a dispute resolution method that can be applied to virtually any kind of family law case. Our Pinellas County family law mediators have assisted couples and families with a wide range of matters.
Mediation can be used to resolve disputes involving:
- Child custody
- Visitation/time sharing
