What Types of Issues Can Be Mediated?

Any dispute can be mediated either by agreement of the parties or by the court ordering mediation. Typical family mediation matters include:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody and Parenting Time
  • Post-divorce issues that arise
  • Pre-divorce filing—parties can decide to resolve their issues before filing for divorce
  • Paternity issues
  • Child Support
  • Sibling disagreements over the care of their parents – eldercare matters
  • Issues or conflicts between parents and adolescents or college-age children
  • Succession issues in a family business where siblings disagree about the transition

Mediation Helps Families Move Forward

Many times families believe that there are intractable conflicts; that no one can help them return to “normal”.  Mediation, however, offers such an opportunity.

Many times the best course of action is to seek mediation before a matter, conflict or issue grows so large, that the only solution is through a bitter, expensive and lengthy court battle that will usually tear apart a family.  Even after a lawsuit has been filed, mediation still presents a great opportunity for resolution, particularly in the early aspects of mediation.
