Mediation For Seattle Area Divorces And Disputes
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary settlement process.
A mediator is an impartial person who helps people in conflict make practical, informed decisions to resolve the issues before them. Unlike a traditional Seattle divorce, which relies on Seattle area divorce attorneys to hash out the settlement, mediation takes place between the two individuals and the mediator.
Mediation for Seattle Divorce, Separation, or Parent Planning
The mediator helps people examine their situation in terms of their needs and interests. Relevant information is gathered, which may include budgets, business records, tax returns, property valuations, etc. Settlement options are developed and discussed to be sure they meet everyone's goals fairly.
Mediation normally incurs less cost and time than traditional Seattle area divorceproceedings. Because you're dividing the cost of the mediator and not spending your money on two different Seattle divorce attorneys, your overall cost is much lower. If you're using a mediator, your time is spent going through the details together rather than passing information back and forth between two divorce lawyers.
The mediation process is less stressful for you and for your children. It can also help divorcing couples develop skills to resolve future disputes regarding parenting issues.
Mediation for Seattle Business or Workplace Disputes, and Elder Care
Mediation is an ideal solution for Workplace or EEO disputes. Solving the dispute between employees or employer and employee is an easy alternative to going to court, paying attorneys, and keeping the dispute private. Similar reasons apply to using mediation instead of paying a Seattle area divorce attorney. The costs will be significantly less and the process can be quick and satisfactory.
Mediating care for an older relative can resolve issues that family members may not agree upon. It also gives the elder a way to contribute to his or her life decisions in agreement with the family.
Using Mediation Makes Sense
When you use mediation for your divorce, separation, work disputes, or for any number of conflicts, you have the ability to solve problems without incurring large costs and lengthy proceedings. Decisions are made by the clients. You can control the decisions that affect your family, your finances, your business, and your life through mediation. Many successful Seattle area divorces and disputes have proceeded smoothly, quickly, and cheaply. Solving uncomfortable and tense situations through mediation creates a sense of accomplishment because you are actively involved in your situation without the feelings of helplessness or uncertainty.
