MEDIATION SERVICES 

Mediation is an alternative to court that is a better way for many couples and families. Mediation is an informal process in which a neutral third party (mediator) encourages and facilitates the resolution of a dispute. The mediator does not have the authority to impose a decision but assists the parties to help them reach their own resolution. If the parties agree upon a resolution, their agreement is reduced to writing in the form of a legally binding contract. 

Key Advantages of Choosing Mediation in Huntsville

  • Parties retain control over all decisions made in a mediation, and do not have the risk that comes with taking their chances at a trial. 
  • Mediation can allow parties to settle cases early in the litigation process (or even before a case is filed), rather than parties having to wait for a trial. 
  • Mediation can result in a substantial economic savings as opposed to a trial. 
  • Individuals who are intimidated by the formality of the courtroom will find mediation to be a less threatening alternative. 
  • Mediation is particularly useful in situations where the parties will need to have an ongoing relationship, as it can help preserve relationships.
  • Parties can explore both legal and personal issues in mediation, which allows them the opportunity to reach customized agreements that will work best for them and their children.
  • Mediation is confidential, as opposed to trials which are open to the public.

Mediation will not work in every situation, no matter how effective a mediator may be. This can be due to the specific nature of the dispute, the parties involved, the case not being “ripe” for settlement, or due to outside forces creating pressure. However, mediation of family law or divorce disputes is generally most effective when each party has their own attorney present during the mediation process to provide legal advice.

Can Mediation Be Used for All Types of Family Law Disputes in Huntsville?

While mediation is a versatile tool that can be used for a wide range of family law disputes in Huntsville, it may not be suitable for every situation. Factors such as the nature of the dispute, the willingness of the parties to negotiate, and the presence of any power imbalances can affect the suitability of mediation.

This privacy is one of the key benefits of choosing mediation over traditional court litigation.
