The court system is not always the best place for parties to resolve their issues. Mediation can provide an alternative way to resolve disagreements over parenting concerns, child support and other financial issues. Mediation is a process that uses an independent, objective person as a mediator to assist the parties in negotiating a fair and acceptable agreement. Mediation is confidential and private and provides a safe environment outside of the court room to help the parties to reach a resolution to their disputes. The mediation process can be less costly than using the courts and allows both parties the opportunity to be heard. The mediator listens, helps the parties find creative resolutions to their issues and often greatly reduces the tension that the court process can create. Mediation allows the parties to have control over the result of their case rather than having a judge made the decision.
