Leah Pallin-Hill, Mediation and Arbitration Services, PLLC
INTRODUCTION: MAKING IMPORTANT DECISIONS OUT OF COURT
Parties who have family disputes should be able to make their own decisions about their futures. When parties go to court, they lose control of the outcome. A judge decides about the division of assets, spousal support, custody and parenting-time matters. One party wins and one party loses. No one can lose at the mediation table.
Mediation is a “win-win” solution for parties and attorneys alike. Attorneys benefit when the parties become the decision makers, because neither party “loses” when disputes are settled out of court. Parties benefit for many reasons: lower cost, less stress for them and their children, less time off from work and perhaps most importantly, because the mediation process teaches them the communication skills they need to resolve disputes in the future.
