When you want to settle your legal case so that both sides win and the lawyers don’t pocket all of your winnings or settlement, then legal mediation can help. Most common in divorce and other civil cases, mediation is a process that involves a third party mediator working in between the two parties in the dispute to help you come to a conclusion that you are both satisfied with.
Sometimes this process is also caused alternative dispute resolution, or ADR. An unbiased source is used in these cases so that you can feel confident that they will not prefer one side over the other. They will look into the details and facts behind your case and then speak with each party about your demands and what you’d like to see as a resolution in this case.
Legal mediation can help you save both time and money. Court cases can be long and messy, especially civil matters. In the time it takes you to go through the court systems and try to resolve the case, you could end up losing a lot of money, even if you come out the winner. With ADR, you can help come to a dispute resolution without going through the time consuming and expensive judicial system that will cost you both time and money, no matter which side you are on.
With legal mediation, you can both come out winners because they will help you to find a solution to many battles and arguments so that both parties agree and then drop the case from a legal standpoint. One example of when this is commonly used to help people is in divorce cases.
Often divorce cases get messy because the couple cannot agree on matters or do not know how to communicate properly with one another. This is often what led to divorce in the first place. When you have a mediator to go between the two of you and help you communicate, you may be able to both get what you want without having to turn to the court system to work it out.
Another case might be in family battles over property or other issues. It could be related to inheritance or estate or some similar issue that is not properly laid out in documentation or when one or both parties want to dispute this documentation.
These are just a few examples of how both sides can win with dispute mediation in lieu of a lengthy court battle. If you have an argument that is making its way to the court systems, why not consider an ADR method today?
