Private mediation is a process where a neutral third party, known as a mediator, facilitates dialogue with the goal of negotiating a resolution between two or more parties caught in a dispute. It aims to find a mutually acceptable solution to the dispute without going to court and exposing yourself to unanticipated judge or jury rulings. A valuable tool for resolving disputes promptly and effectively, it is usually less formal and significantly less expensive than traditional litigation.
Private mediation can be pursued in various areas of the law, but Hometown Counsel generally practices it in the context of family law. Legal disputes of any kind can be complex and emotionally challenging, but family law cases are especially so. Finding the right solution can be difficult without the proper support. By seeking the assistance and guidance of a mediation process law firm, you can not only increase your chances of receiving the ideal outcome for your case but also reduce the stress and difficulties that can come with your legal dispute.
Based in Gastonia, North Carolina, Hometown Counsel’s team of private mediation lawyers draw on years of combined experience helping people navigate their family law disputes in the following contexts:
More often than not, divorce is an arduous ordeal to undergo. Although complicated and not accomplished most of the time, coming to an agreement can save both parties countless hours and dollars. Although private mediation lawyers do not make decisions and only help the parties make them, they can prove invaluable. They bring a level of understanding of the law, as well as an unbiased perspective on the situation, that can steer the divorcing couple in an amicable direction.
Family law disputes, especially child custody disagreements, can be some of the most emotionally charged and contentious legal matters. If you are going through a divorce with children involved, your Hometown Counsel lawyer will step in as a child custody mediation attorney to help you and your spouse agree on a plan that truly aligns with your child’s best interests. They will help both parties identify their desires and concerns and facilitate discussions to reach a mutually acceptable solution. By avoiding the cost and stress of traditional litigation, they will help you move forward as positively as possible, given the difficult circumstances.
Child custody issues have implications beyond the immediate child custody case. For example, extended family members such as grandparents are very often incredibly close with children. As a result, they will more likely than not want to maintain their relationship with the children despite the divorce. Managing an additional layer to your child custody case can prove difficult if you handle the matter yourself. Our child custody mediation attorneys know how to weigh these peripheral factors in your case so things resolve as best as possible.
