Family disputes are some of the most difficult because they are so personal. In addition to addressing legal issues, resolutions must also consider the emotions and individual well-being of those involved. This is what makes family and divorce mediation such a useful tool for resolving disputes within a family.
Family and divorce mediation utilizes the assistance of an impartial third-party to negotiate a resolution. The mediator promotes the participants’ voluntary agreement by helping everyone see how beneficial it is to use this process as an alternative to other dispute resolution methods.
The mediator assist with communication during the process, encourages understanding, and helps parties focus on both their individual and common interests. Together, everyone explores options, makes decisions, and reaches an agreement based on their specific interests and desires.
Every family is different and every family requires a solution tailored to their unique circumstances. Unlike other forms of resolution, mediation does not impose a one-size-fits-all solution on disputing parties, but provides a flexible environment in which parties can design their own resolution.
