Mediation is an alternative way of settling a legal dispute without going to court. During this process, two opposing parties meet with a mediator to negotiate terms for a possible resolution. The mediator, which would be one of our attorneys, acts as a neutral third party who facilitates this process.
How long it takes to mediate your dispute depends upon its nature and complexity. In most cases, settlements can come within several sessions spanning across a few months. While this may sound like a lot of time, going to court can take much longer due to its backlog of cases.
People can use mediation to resolve any kind of family law dispute. If you need to resolve terms of your divorce, child custody agreement, or figure out child support or spousal support, you can accomplish these things through mediation.
Whether or not mediation is right for you comes down to how willing you and the other party are willing to work together. Mediation can involve lots of compromise, so it might not be the right solution if the parties involved don’t have an amicable relationship.
Beyond that, mediation avoids the time and money involved with litigation and going to court. If you aren’t confident that you can get what you need from a judge or jury, proposing mediation can be a viable option.
Consult with a mediation lawyer in Fargo if you need help assessing whether this process is right for you. Mediation can be an easier alternative compared to going to court, but it still takes a lot of work. Our mediator is certified in Minnesota and North Dakota and can help you reach a better outcome.
