Top Reasons to Mediate your Family Law Case

There are many reasons why you should consider a mediated approach to your family law case. Some of the main benefits include:

  1. Most cases resolve at mediation.
  2. Mediation is quicker than the court process and more efficient. Anyone who has been in court on a family law case will know that cases can drag out for months or years, often at tremendous financial and emotional cost.
  3. Mediation involves a focused effort to resolve conflict, not to make it worse or more antagonistic. Our legal system is designed to be adversarial—lawyers act for individuals not couples.
  4. You are in control of the result. In court, the judge is the decision-maker which means that you have less control over the outcome. Why not make your own decisions for yourself and your family?
  5. Mediation promotes communication. In family disputes, especially those involving children, like it or not, you may need to be in communication with your former partner for decades, if not the rest of your life. Why not focus on improving communication to make life better for you and your family?
