MEDIATION SAVES TIME, MONEY, AND STRESS
Family law litigation is acrimonious, stressful, expensive, and time consuming. Mediation can be inexpensively completed in a few hours without any court appearances.
FAST FACTS ABOUT MEDIATION
Mediation is a method of alternative dispute resolution where a neutral third party, usually an attorney or former judge, helps litigants resolve legal disputes. It can be particularly effective in divorce and family law cases where outcomes are usually non-binary and conducive to compromise or settlement. As a result, family court judges commonly order the parties to attend mediation or a similar dispute resolution process as part of litigation.
Litigation can be really time consuming, stressful, and expensive. Consider, as an example, divorce. We’ve seen hourly divorce attorneys charge more than $200,000 to complete litigation that lasted more than two years. Do you really want to spend the next several months or years of your life with the uncertainty and extreme cost of pending litigation?
Litigation is really inconvenient. The parties often have to take time off work to travel to family court to attend any number of ten to fifteen minute hearings that accomplish very little.
