Experienced attorneys in our firm are prepared to assist you with mediation in a variety of areas. Family mediation may involve issues of divorce, child custody and support, parental access, spousal maintenance (alimony) or grandparent visitation, among others. In each of these areas the joint determinations of the parties, assisted by skilled mediators, take your matter from its initiation to a speedy resolution, without the need for a trial or courtroom appearance, saving you time, money and agitation.
Mediation is preferred to litigation because mediation puts you at the center of all determinations. You, with the help of the mediator, examine choices, review alternatives and come to a mutual agreement with your spouse or other family member or any other person with whom you have a controversy. Mediation sessions are scheduled at your convenience. Lawyer involvement is limited. Costs of mediation compared to costs of litigation reveal that mediation is far less expensive for participants who usually equally share mediation expenses. Your voluntary decision to participate in mediation gives you the power to decide the issues. You are the person in control.
The imaginative, resourceful and experienced mediators at BarketMarion will see to it that your serious family issues are successfully negotiated and resolved.
