Mediation is a voluntary negotiating process that gives the parties total control over the outcome of their dispute. Mediation has a structure and timetable that traditional negotiation and litigation lacks. During mediation, couples participate with a neutral mediator who assists the parties in resolving their divorce issues and reaching a legally binding agreement. Mediation has significant benefits over litigation.
If you work directly with O'Connor & Martin you also save the headache of having to hire other third parties to get involved in the mediation process. Many individuals claim to be mediators but since they are not licensed attorneys they are not able to provide full services for the mediation process. With our ability to keep it internal we make the the process much more easier for our clients!
Despite the many benefits of mediation, some divorces and some people are simply not cut out for mediation. Although the parties can have significant disputes and disagree on major issues, they should be respectful towards each other. When one or both of the parties are not willing to work together, litigation may be the only option. Our attorneys will evaluate your situation and explain your options.
