WHY CHOOSE MEDIATION
Mediation focus strategies
Mediation focuses on strategies that help couples create solutions that work best for their situation. In many cases, disputes appear unfixable simply because communication between two people has broken down. We guide couples toward constructive resolutions and mitigate circumstances that would create a hostile environment.
We encourage open communication and focus on building cohesive agreements that are fair and equitable for couples and families. Conflict in a relationship is completely normal, our mediators are experts and guide couples to have enlightening, productive conversations that lead to resolutions.
What You Can Expect:
1. Greater Control: Mediation increases the control couples have over the resolutions.
2. It’s Confidential: Unlike the publicity of court proceedings, everything shared during mediation is entirely confidential (unless specifically agreed otherwise).
3. It’s Voluntary: Both parties must agree to participate and neither party can force the other to engage in mediation.
4. Reduced Costs: Generally, the cost is greatly reduced in comparison with trying to settle matters through court. Traditional litigation is very expensive, and the total cost is highly unpredictable.
5. Faster Outcomes: Because mediation can be used in a dispute, an agreement can usually be reached quicker than if pursued through court.
6. Support: Mediators are trained in working with difficult situations. The mediator acts as a neutral facilitator and supports each party through the process.
7. Preservation of Relationships: The preservation of relationships can be a key benefit of mediation. Mediation helps participants focus on effectively communicating with each other as opposed to attacking each other. This is especially important when there are kids and spouses need to keep the communication going in order to ensure that both parents are focusing on the child’s best interest.
