Mediation is a process which allows the parties to meet together with a neutral Mediator focused on the parties desire to reach settlement. The Mediator does not represent either of the parties and does not offer legal advice. Instead, the Mediator provides the parties with information about the law regarding the issues they seek to resolve. The process empowers the parties to decide what happens in their case instead of allowing the court to decide. The parties ultimately reach their own agreement.
Batley Family Law provides Mediation services for domestic relations matters including divorce, custody and domestic partner dissolutions. The Mediation process works best when the parties are emotionally fit, able to openly communicate about their issues and are willing to compromise. Parties considering Mediation should feel like they are on an “equal playing field” when negotiating with each other. Our attorneys’ extensive experience with Mediation settlements, combined with skillful collaborative techniques provide added strength to the Mediation process we provide.
