Mediation is a form of dispute resolution intended to allow the parties involved in a divorce to reach a settlement together without a trip to court. In addition to saving valuable time and money by avoiding litigation, it offers the benefit of putting the resolution in your hands. Whereas a judge has a limited number of resolutions he or she can offer, divorce mediation allows you to creatively determine solutions to address every aspect of your divorce. Our lead attorney, Marian Weeks, is a certified mediator.
Child Custody Arbitration
Arbitration is similar to litigation in that the arbitrator, taking the place of a judge, comes to a decision. The difference is that it is typically less time-consuming and less expensive. It allows the two parties to each play a closer role in the outcome of the case. Our lead lawyer, Marian Weeks, is a certified arbitrator.
Family Law Case Evaluation
Prior to a trial, the option of a case evaluation exists. This is essentially a test run of a trial. A case evaluator listens to both sides of a case and offers you an assessment of how he or she would rule if he or she were the judge in the case. This grants you a true understanding of what may happen in the courtroom and allows you another opportunity to come to a settlement agreement that may be more beneficial than the judge's decision. Our lead attorney, Marian Weeks, is a certified case evaluator.
