Did you know you can keep the courts out of your family’s personal business and solve issues with far less stress by choosing mediation over traditional litigation? Mediation has a myriad of benefits -- privacy is just the tip of the iceberg!
At The Law Offices of Mackenzie Sorich, PLLC, we believe that resolving family law disputes out of court is a great option. We have seen first hand how courts can fail to meet our clients’ needs. In today’s blog post, we’re looking at the biggest benefits of choosing mediation.
Confidentiality. As we mentioned above, your privacy is much more protected with mediation than with litigation. Court cases are a matter of public record, so anything you reveal in the courtroom can be known to the public. Most people don’t want the whole world to know about their personal matters. Mediation keeps it all confidential.
Affordability. You can save an enormous amount of money by choosing mediation over commercial litigation. It costs far less.
Quickness. Court cases can be very long and drawn out. Things move much more quickly with mediation. We have had cases that are solved in just a single session after a reasonable amount of preparation. In the courtroom, family law cases can often take a year or more (which is part of what makes it so much more expensive, as mentioned above).
More authentic. There are less strict rules and regulations in a mediation than there are at court. You can speak more freely and feel less concerned about misspeaking or making a mistake.
Personalized solutions. Since a neutral third party will help the two disputing parties reach an agreement in mediation, they have more control. They are not putting their fate in the hands of a judge. Neither person is forced to accept a conclusion that they are not comfortable with. This makes the outcome more fair and both sides generally leave more satisfied after compromising than they would after a court battle where no one wins.
