Divorce and Family Law Mediation

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.

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.

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 they would rule if they 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.
