In most family law cases, some kind of mediation is required before the case may be set for trial. I am a Hickory mediation attorney who can help you move forward if mediation is right for you and your family.
In divorce mediation, a neutral party, the mediator, facilitates negotiations between the spouses. The mediator is able to explore the desires and goals of each party and suggest solutions that might help them reach agreement. Mediation is a voluntary process that is confidential, flexible, and private. A settlement is reached only when both parties agree. Since the process is more efficient and faster than litigation, couples often reach a solution more quickly and at less expense. Mediation also allows the parties to craft a unique resolution that is best suited to their particular family circumstances. Contact me if you are interested in pursuing mediation in your own case.
