Mediation is a voluntary dispute resolution process that many people now turn to when they believe there is a possibility of reaching a mutually satisfactory agreement between the parties.

When the parties reach an agreement through mediation services Attorney Goldberg will draft the separation agreement and all necessary supporting documentation for the parties to file with the court. Attorney Goldberg effectuates all court communications and filings and sets a mutually agreeable hearing date for the final hearing on the matter, if necessary.

Some of the benefits of mediation include:

  • Mediation is typically a less expensive process than litigation. The parties share the cost of one mediator as opposed to each retaining separate counsel.
  • Mediation allows the parties to create an agreement that works for their individual circumstances, rather than relying on arbitrary conclusions not tailor fit for them.
  • Mediation preserves and fosters good communication between the parties becuase they each take a role in the creation of their solutions.
  • Mediation can be a significantly faster approach to dispute resolution and finalization of legal issues. Often only a few sessions are necessary.
  • When parties mediate their agreements they do not need to appear in court for multiple public hearings; depending on the circumstances there is just one final hearing.

If you are interested in mediation services please call the office and inform reception that this may be a solution for you.
