In our previous blog post, we discussed how mediation can help you to work out family law issues. This can be a very effective tool in family law cases because it takes the decision making away from the court and places it with you and your ex. This can help you and your ex to work together in a way that allows you to compromise to get what you want.
In family law cases, mediation is helpful for a variety of issues. We can help you to get property divided using mediation. When you do this, you have to decide what property is important to you and what property you are willing to let go. We can discuss your goals with you so that you can have an idea of what to do.
We can also help you with child custody matters. Again, you have to decide what you are willing to compromise on and what matters you wish to hold firm to. You and your ex can use the help of the mediator to work things out.
It is vital that you ensure your interests are protected throughout the mediation process. We can help you to learn how to do this. We can help you learn how to get a settlement that puts the matters close to your heart at the forefront of the agreement.
If for some reason you are unable to come to an agreement through mediation, your case would then move to court. That, however, will likely take longer and cost more than going through mediation.
