Understanding Family Mediation
Mediation is a fantastic way to peacefully resolve family conflicts. As a Mediator I act as an unbiased professional to facilitate communication between opposing parties. In mediation, the goal is for the parties to find middle ground and agree to a settlement outside of court. This method of dispute resolution can work for a variety of family law issues, including contested divorces and grandparent visitation disputes.
Benefits of Mediation
If you’re looking to avoid a costly and time-consuming litigation process, consider bringing in a mediator. Working with a neutral third party in mediation can help you:
Control the result of your case
When you use Mediation to address your family law issue, you’ll be able to control the outcome instead of relying on a judge’s decision. As a Mediator, I use advanced techniques to open and improve communication between disputants, to help the parties develop a shared understanding of the conflict and work toward building a practical and lasting resolution.
A Certified Family Law Mediator
I am a certified family law mediator, which means I am specially trained to mediate divorce, custody and other family law issues. Choosing to mediate a family law dispute often results in a more efficient outcome with fewer hard feelings among the parties.
In addition to family law, I am also available to mediate other issues, including contested guardianships and contested probate cases.
Ready to Put Your Family First
Even if you think you and your spouse will be able to come to a quick agreement on whatever your dispute is, it is important to have an attorney in your corner who understands how the law works and can protect your legal rights and best interests.
For example, you may think you are agreeing to a fair property division settlement, but your assets may not have been properly valued, causing you to agree to a settlement that harms you financially for years. As your lawyer, I will have your back from start to finish, giving you the practical legal advice you need to make decisions that protect your future.
At Judith Trentman Wilson, Attorney at Law, P.C., I will work hard to protect your rights and give you the representation you deserve. If you are filing for divorce or in the middle of a family law dispute, contact my office in Belleville, Illinois, today to schedule a consultation. Whether you live in St. Clair County, Madison County, Washington County, or Monroe County, I’m ready to help you and your family move forward. I also advise clients on matters involving their estate plans.
