Understanding Mediation in Family Law

Mediation is a process in which disputing parties meet with a specially trained, neutral third party to discuss and resolve family law-related issues.

Mediation is a good fit for any family case matter, including:

Mediation is less stressful and less expensive than litigation, reducing the emotional and financial impact on all parties involved – especially children. The involved parties – not a judge or magistrate – have the final say over everything in mediation, so couples maintain power and control over their divorce. This process builds communication and co-parenting skills.

Commonly Asked Questions

What are the benefits of choosing mediation over litigation for divorce?

Choosing mediation over litigation for divorce offers several benefits. It is generally less expensive and time-consuming than going to court. Mediation provides a private and confidential setting for couples to discuss sensitive issues, which can reduce stress and emotional turmoil. Additionally, it allows couples to have more control over the final agreement, rather than having a judge make decisions for them. This can lead to more satisfactory outcomes and preserve amicable relationships, which is particularly beneficial when children are involved.

Can mediation be used for resolving child custody disputes in Maumee?

Yes, mediation can be an effective method for resolving child custody disputes in Maumee. It allows parents to discuss and negotiate custody arrangements in a less adversarial environment than a courtroom.
