What is a Mediation Lawyer Chandler?
A Mediation Lawyer can either be a person conducting a mediation or a person helping guide you during your mediation. Both, while having very different roles, can be helpful. Citadel Law Firm can help you if you need a Mediation Lawyer in Chandler. There are countless benefits to a Mediation Lawyer conducting a mediation during your divorce or custody dispute.
If you’re new to the process or need a little background, which is completely normal, a mediation is an informal meeting between the parties and the attorneys with a neutral, third party present who is tasked with facilitating the conversation and helping the parties come to a mutually agreed upon resolution. Importantly, a Mediation Lawyer Chandler has no authority to force the parties into an agreement. The only way the Mediation Attorney can bind the parties to an agreement is if both parties agreed in writing giving the Mediation Lawyer the power to draft an agreement.
Some of the advantages of using a Mediation Lawyer are:
- The process is generally quicker;
- The process may be less expensive and better for the parties.
If you are using an experienced Mediation Lawyer, you can likely find resolution significantly faster than if you were to take your case all the way to trial. Currently, the average duration from filing to the Petition for Dissolution (divorce) to the final trial is 12 months. That amount of time does not include any time necessary for the court to rule on the matter and is only the average. There is a possibility your case could end up lasting significantly longer depending on the personalities involved. A Mediation Lawyer Chandler mediating the issues to settlement can greatly decrease the length of litigation.
Moreover, on average, parties spend roughly half of the money on attorney’s fees and overall costs when using a Mediation Lawyer and the process is much simpler. At trial is when the proverbial bullets get fired. The gloves come off and generally the dirty laundry is aired between the parties. As you can imagine, this process has a tendency, at least temporarily, to create distance between the parties and even more animosity between people who likely have a common shared interest – children. This helps nobody, especially the adorable and innocent 3rd parties who just want to love the heck out of mom and dad. A Mediation Lawyer will help keep costs and animosity down so that you and your ex can learn how to effectively co-parent with one another. A better reliantionship between the parents for sure help the child(ren) involved in the process of a divorce as well.
