FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why Choose Mediation2020-09-14T22:28:18-04:00

Mediation allows individuals to retain control over the process and the outcome of important decisions in their lives that will profoundly affect their finances, livelihood and family. In the mediation process a solution can usually be found within weeks instead of the months or years it may take in a traditional court process. Mediation is for any person who wants to solve their problems in less time and more cost effectively than using the court system.

How Does The Process Work?2020-09-24T18:00:42-04:00

The mediator will assist the parties in arriving at a mutually beneficial agreement that meets their immediate and long-term goals. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties and is not an advocate for either party over the other. The mediator will not decide who is right or wrong. With the mediator’s help the parties will determine what issues are important to each of them and come up with reasonable solutions to meet their goals. Click here to learn more.

How Long Does Mediation Take?2020-09-24T18:00:06-04:00

The length of the mediation depends on the parties. A simple matter can be resolved in one or two sessions. A more complex matter may take longer. Each session is usually 1 ½ to 2 hours, but can last longer. The sessions are usually scheduled at the convenience of the parties.

How Much Does Mediation Cost?2020-09-24T17:59:50-04:00

The total cost of mediation varies depending on the amount of hours spent on the process, however mediation is always less expensive than litigation. Our popular pay-as-you-go model allows you to skip expensive attorney retainers and pay only as you need to.

What Happens If We Cannot Reach Agreement?2020-09-24T18:24:11-04:00

Typically, our mediators are able to assist most parties in reaching an agreement. However, if for some reason an agreement is not reached the parties are free to move forward with the traditional litigation process. However, the mediation agreement states that all information exchanged in the mediation process is confidential and cannot be used for litigation purposes.

Is The Information Provided To The Mediator Confidential?2020-09-24T18:24:26-04:00

Yes, all information both financial and personal is kept confidential and is not disclosed by the mediator and cannot be used in any future litigation.

Do I Need My Own Attorney?2020-09-24T18:00:27-04:00

Each party is encouraged, but not required, to have the final agreement reviewed by an independent attorney before they sign it. Parties may consult with an attorney throughout the entire mediation process.

Why Choose Litigation?2020-09-24T18:34:10-04:00

Litigation should be chosen as a last resort. If your spouse has already filed for divorce, if communication between you an your spouse has become strained, or if either of you refuse to mediate, litigation may be your best option. To learn if litigation is the best option for you, click here.
