Using Mediation To Resolve Family Law Issues
Mediation can play a key role in resolving difficult family law issues. If you are in conflict with a family member and cannot resolve the matter on your own, a professional mediator can guide you to a solution that works for everyone concerned.
I am a trained and certified mediator who can help you resolve your differences through mediation. From my office in Plano, I serve clients in Collin County, the Dallas Metroplex and throughout North Texas.
When Family Mediation Works
Divorce issues often lend themselves to effective mediation. These can include:
- Child custody arrangements and visitation
- Child support agreements
- Modification of custody or support orders
There are also many other family law issues besides divorce where mediation can be a fruitful process. This can occur with issues such as:
- Care of an elderly relative
- Disputes about the distribution of estates
- Premarital or post-marital agreements for couples with blended families
Mediation Has Advantages
As a Plano divorce mediator, I will sometimes go back and forth between the parties to clarify the issues, communicate proposals and brainstorm outside-the-box possibilities. At other times, I will gather the parties together to put the final touches on a mutually workable solution.
The give-and-take involved when you mediate can be very helpful to overcome difficult issues. The flexibility tends to keep the process moving forward, rather than getting bogged down in conflict. As a lawyer and certified mediator, I also help people with issues outside of family law, such as musicians, bands and others in athletics and entertainment.
