Mediation

Mediation provides parties with a neutral third-party to assist in working through disagreements. The process of mediation allows the parties to discuss their concerns and disagreements without revealing their grievances as part of the public record. In cases present in the court system or ordered to mediation by a judge, the mediator simply reports settled or not settled back to the court. Mediation can be instrumental in avoiding litigation, avoiding prolonged participation in the court system, and avoiding costly legal expenses. Mediation also allows the parties to remain the decision-makers in their case. For more information on mediation and its benefits see the Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution website. The following provides information on the types of mediation services offered. Give us a call to discuss your case to see if we can be of assistance.

Co-Parenting Mediation

  • Focus on your Kids
  • Maintain Control
  • Reduce Conflict
  • Save Time
  • Save Money
Whether a couple is experiencing high-conflict or has merely arrived at an impasse in discussions regarding specific issues, co-parenting mediation can help. Examples of issues that could come up, especially if they are not addressed in the divorce agreement, are the visitation schedule, education, religion, and extra-curricular activities, just to name a few.
 
Tip: The courts would rather not be involved in the decision-making of your family. If both co-parents agree to make changes to their divorce settlement, it can be filed with the court for the judge to approve, likely without having to make a court appearance. Therefore, using co-parenting mediation can save time and money in finding a resolution while also allowing you, the parents, to make the decisions for your family.

Mediation is an effective and healthy way to reach your goals and is an excellent option with far-reaching benefits. Speak to your attorney about the choice of mediation and have them give us a call. If you and your spouse are interested in handling your settlement yourselves, I can provide a list of mediation-friendly attorneys for you to choose for review and filing of your agreement.
