Divorce can be a difficult journey, but with the right guidance, it doesn’t have to be a battle.

We are committed to being accessible, providing personal attention and maintaining open lines of communication as we work toward achieving favorable outcomes for your future.

Understanding The Mediation Process

Mediation is an important part of the family law process. Courts often require mediation as an integral step in the process for contested divorces or other contested family law cases. Even for uncontested divorces, mediation can help resolve outstanding issues or disagreements regarding the many details that need to be sorted out. Mediation involves meeting with a private, neutral third party to try to resolve issues in the divorce without having to battle it out in court. Through mediation, you can settle key terms of your divorce, such as child custody and property division.

However, mediation can sometimes feel coercive and stressful. Having an attorney on your side who will look out for your rights and interests can make the process go much more smoothly. At Heinrich Christian, PLLC, we walk clients through the mediation process and help them feel comfortable and confident. Whether you need legal counsel on your side at mediation, or whether you are seeking the services of a third-party mediator, we can help.

Mediation Can Simplify The Divorce Process

There are numerous benefits to choosing mediation as part of your divorce. At Heinrich Christian, PLLC, our attorneys are ready to meet with you, explain the process and help you determine if mediation is the right option for you.

There are many benefits to mediation, including:

  • Mediation is more economical than litigation.
  • Mediation allows parties to stay in control of the outcome of the case.
  • Unlike the courtroom, mediation is completely confidential.

Both parties can communicate more openly in order to reach a workable compromise. Additionally, outcomes are never forced upon parties in mediation. Each party may independently evaluate whether to accept a particular resolution. Agreements reached in mediation are binding and enforceable, which is why it is important to have an experienced family law attorney representing you at mediation.

We represent clients in both mediation and collaborative divorce. We can act as your third-party mediator during this process and ensure that a fair result is reached. Our rates for our mediation services begin at $350 an hour. If you wish to find out more about these alternatives to litigation, we urge you to contact our law office to speak to one of our attorneys.

How Mediation Can Benefit All Family Law Disputes

Mediation is a versatile tool that offers significant benefits across a wide range of family law disputes. While litigation is a common resolution method for settling disputes involving child custody, child support, modifications and enforcements, it can result in long-term damage to the relationship between the divorced spouses and even between a parent and their children.

Through mediation, both parties can work together to find an agreeable resolution to their disputes. In addition to having more control over when these meetings take place, you can also have more control over how they resolve, instead of leaving your future to the mercy of the courtroom.

One of the primary advantages of mediation is its ability to reduce conflict and stress. For example, in child custody cases, parents can focus on creating a parenting plan that serves the best interests of their children, rather than engaging in a prolonged court battle. In child support disputes, parents can be open about the realities of their financial situations and the needs of their children. This kind of transparency can lead to arrangements that are fair for both sides while reducing the chances of either parent being malicious in their goals.

How Our Mediation And Representation Services Can Benefit You

At Heinrich Christian, PLLC, we serve both as mediators and representatives in mediation. As mediators, we act as neutral third parties, facilitating discussions and helping parties find common ground. As representatives, we advocate for you through your mediation to defend your best interests, understand the details of the process and help you pursue the outcome you deserve in your mediation.

When representing clients in mediation, we provide robust legal support to protect their interests. Before the mediation session, we advise our clients on their situation, explain their rights and requirements through the process, and advocate for you through your mediation to defend your best interests and help you pursue the outcome you deserve in your mediation.

Whether you need someone to help you and your ex-spouse reach an agreeable resolution in your family disputes or you want to help defend your best interests throughout the process, we can provide you with the guidance and support of an experienced family law mediation team.
