Benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution
Mediation allows divorcing spouses an opportunity to resolve their disputes without court intervention. In many instances, mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods limit the emotional and financial burdens involved in divorce. At the law office of J. Randal Hunter, Attorney at Law, we mediate cases and represent our clients in mediation.
Not every case can be resolved through mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods. At our law firm, we prepare every case for trial, even if we hope it can be resolved through mediation. If mediation will not resolve your family law matter, we provide vigorous and skilled representation in the courtroom.
Benefits of Mediation
In our Judicial District, all family law matters must go through mediation before going to trial. We may not be able to settle everything in mediation, but we are often able to settle most matters.
Because mediation is faster, less expensive and less emotionally painful than litigation, many people prefer settling matters without going to court. Mediation allows the parties to choose their own destinies and to settle matters with dignity. For spouses who are raising children together, mediation can help maintain the parents’ relationship, so they can continue working together to raise their children.
