Probate/Elder Care Mediation


Probate mediation is an effective way to avoid the expense and time-consuming nature of litigating matters related to an estate. By taking the matter to mediation, all involved are able to discuss their concerns openly and honestly. The sessions are private and confidential, so nobody need worry about personal and family issues become a matter of public record. Years of hurt feelings and distrust between family members can be resolved without increasing tension with the guidance of a skilled mediator. Perhaps best of all, probate mediation allows for unorthodox solutions. Families can design an outcome that is perfectly suited for their individual circumstances.

Mediation can be an effective way to resolve elder care issues. No family wants to take their personal issues into the courtroom for all to see. Whether you are dealing with an abusive or neglectful situation at a care facility or a dispute is occurring within your family in regard to the care of a loved one, mediation provides a private, individualized way to settle the issue.

Aging can be a challenge, from the perspective of the elderly and the loved ones surrounding him or her. There are difficult decisions that need to be made, and despite everyone wanting to do what is in the best interest of loved ones, family dynamics often interfere. Sadly, families are torn apart doing their best to support an aging loved one. It does not need to be this way. A skilled, experienced mediator like Dennis Powers can bring common sense and understanding to the issues.

Dennis understands that health, happiness, and well-being are important issues when it comes to your elder loved one. He can help you discuss the issues in dispute in an organized and controlled manner, without all of the “red tape” involved in litigation.
