Can A Greensboro Family Law Attorney Explain What Mediation Is and When It Should Be Used?
Yes, of course! There are two different paths you can take in your course of action. One of those is a trial, and the other is mediation. Mediation results when two people settle their case via agreement or a consent order. Basically, they end up being able to come to a resolution without the judge telling them what to do. There are several benefits to choosing mediation rather than going to trial, and most of the time people end up with a happier outcome after a successful mediation.

So, why would people rather go to mediation rather than taking the issue up in court? You’e obviously had a difficult time trying to sort out and get through the process, and at this point you feel like there’s no way that you could come to a resolution without a judge. Well, a lot of people think that, but the truth is that mediation is 40%-80% of the time. And people are more happy with their results from a mediation. Why? Because they have a real “say” in what happens with how the case is settled, as opposed to leaving it to a judge to decide on their own. Additionally, mediation is usually far less expensive and time consuming than going to trail. Litigating, rather than mediating, can last for years in some cases! Lastly, people are more likely to abide by the rules of the mediation than by what the judge orders. This is because they’ve actually agreed to the terms in the mediation, so they are obviously more likely to follow their own rules than that of a judge.
