Mediation has proven to be a very effective way to resolve family law cases without the need for expensive litigation.

Mediation is a form of “alternative dispute resolution,” a way in which disputing parties can work to resolve their disagreements without going to court. Mediation can be held prior to or after the suit is filed. Once an initial petition has been filed, if the parties cannot otherwise settle the case without mediation, the court will require mediation prior to a final trial.

Mediation has become more popular and widespread because of its benefits to the courts and to parties. Mediation can mean that disputes are resolved using far less time and money and without overburdening court resources. However, time and cost savings are only part of the benefits of mediation.

The attorneys at The Office of Linda A. Bailey work passionately toward solutions that help clients reach resolutions in the most professional manner possible.

Family law disputes and divorce cases are particularly well-suited to mediation not only because of the very private nature of these disputes, but also because of the extreme emotional strain caused by prolonged litigation in these cases. Mediation allows the parties to maintain control over the specifics relevant to that family and to devise solutions particular to each family’s unique circumstances.

Private mediation provides an option to divorcing families to have their issues mediated and resolved as quickly and as privately as possible, with the least amount of disruption and the highest amount of individuality. The entire process is confidential, allowing the parties the freedom to explore all possible avenues of settlement, without these offers being used against them if mediation proves unsuccessful. Furthermore, sensitive and often complex financial issues can be openly discussed and resolved within the privacy of a confidential mediation without media or other unwanted attention, particularly in high profile dissolutions.
