If you are going through a divorce or need to resolve another type of family law case, it is possible that you will be ordered into mediation. Mediation is a type of non-litigate meeting where opposing parties can discuss their issues out of court. The parties can meet with their attorneys as representatives, or just with each other and a third party mediator.
Mediation is a fantastic solution for resolving issues without the imposition of a judge or the court. Nothing said in mediation can be used as evidence during a court hearing, so both parties can feel free to express themselves fully. In some cases, opposing parties can completely resolve their cases within mediation, and just enter a solution into court. This saves money on court fees as well as diminishes the stress that comes with having to go to court.
