Use Mediation To Avoid The Time And Cost Of Litigation
Every family is unique, so it stands to reason that every family will resolve disputes in the unique way that works best for the family. Divorce is a stressful and sometimes confrontational process, but fortunately there are several ways to navigate through this process based on your needs and preferences. In addition to litigation and negotiating a settlement, there is a third option called mediation.
In mediation, the parties seeking a divorce, separation or related legal matters hire a neutral third party to help them reach an agreement. This third party – called a mediator – provides legal information but not legal advice. A mediator does not have to be a lawyer, but lawyers who are trained as mediators can provide especially thorough and accurate information on legal questions.
Mediation can take many forms, but in general, its purpose is to help both parties reach a mutually satisfactory agreement while avoiding the time and expense of litigation. Each spouse can meet with the mediator directly, or they can communicate with the mediator through their respective attorneys.

At Jose A. Rodriguez Law, P.L., we believe it is crucial for people facing family law issues to fully understand the consequences of their decisions and how those decisions are made. When those decisions are made in mediation, they are more likely to be satisfactory to both parties and sustainable in the long run so you and your former spouse can avoid returning to the same dispute in the future. The greatest benefit of mediation is that there is no limit to the creative solutions that can be used to meet your family’s unique needs.
