Columbus, Delaware and Central Ohio Mediation Attorneys
There are several options for resolving family related challenges, or issues at the end of a marriage without going to court. Mediation is an excellent tool for finding solutions to areas of disagreement between parties without the expensive litigation and time delays associated with hearings and trials.
Many couples wish to bring their marriage to a close without destroying the relationships of those involved, and to preserve a good working partnership for the future. In Ohio, a dissolution allows a couple to terminate their marriage in a much shorter period of time and at a much lower cost. However, a dissolution requires complete agreement by both parties on every area of the separation agreement including the distribution of income, assets, liabilities, child custody, visitation and support issues, as well as investment and retirement accounts. What if there is an area or problem where the couple has substantial disagreement but wishes to work through it together in the shortest amount of time, and with the lowest cost in terms of emotion and money?
The Lawrence Law Office offers mediation services in all issues related to family law. Mediation is a non-binding process for resolving legal issues with the guidance of a certified mediator. In a mediation, the parties rely on a neutral mediator to help establish an environment of cooperation and a clear focus on the problem(s) at hand. This is a process which allows the couple to more comfortably share their concerns and openly discuss all areas of a challenge in a more efficient and private setting. Each person has more influence and control over the discussion than if an issue were litigated in court, and many parties can reach an effective solution with the guidance of the mediator.
How Can I Reduce the Cost of My Divorce? How do I Avoid Expensive Legal Battles? Contact a Columbus Ohio Mediation firm, or call us today at 740-513-2105.
If a couple is working through a divorce there are usually tough issues which are emotionally charged and have significant cost and quality of life implications. We have all heard the stories of long and expensive court battles which leave all parties unsatisfied and bitter. Once an issue goes to court, the couple involved loses all control and they will have little to no influence over the process or the outcome. Privacy is an important consideration in many cases, especially when substantial assets or confidential financial information is being disputed.
Mediation is an excellent tool to bring the parties together and establish an environment where the issues can be discussed and resolved in a confidential and productive manner, resulting in a more acceptable and affordable solution for all involved.
