Mediation is a process that allows families to handle disputes without court intervention.
When a divorce or custody dispute is handled by a court, it can take months, if not years, before a resolution is reached. Mediation is a way for families to bypass this process and create their own. Mediation allows the parties to reach an agreement that works for their family without the final say of a judge.
A mediator, unlike a judge, does not decide the outcome of the parties’ case. Instead, they offer advice and deescalate conflicts so that the parties can reach an agreement. Mediation can achieve flexible, creative, and private solutions that allow individuals to deal with changing family dynamics on their own terms.
