Mediation Services in Bayfield County, Wisconsin
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) used in Bayfield County for people going through a divorce. It involves a neutral third party who encourages and facilitates negotiation. Mediation is a voluntary process in which parties to a divorce or parenting situation, with the help of a Mediator, reach mutually acceptable agreements to resolve the dispute. Mediation is becoming an increasingly popular means of solving conflict within the world of divorce. Mediation enables the parties to settle their disputes with the help of an impartial mediator in a time effective, flexible, confidential process much less expensive than litigation.
Why Meditation is Beneficial
There are various benefits of mediation that make it a desirable alternative to expensive and lengthy litigation:
- Cost-effective – The process does not require standardized claims, procedures or discovery of documents. It streamlines the divorce process, which means less spending by the parties.
- Before and during litigation – The method can occur before or during proceedings – even while the case is in court.
- Lawyers – though not the norm, parties may include their legal representatives in the mediation process if everyone agrees having them present will help.
- Prompt – The short lead-in time allows parties to come to mediation quicker than if they litigated in court with attorneys.
- Private Settlement – Everything discussed in mediation is confidential, with the only thing coming out of the process are the parenting and financial agreements reached.
- Binding – Parties can look for many different possible ways to a settlement without the process being binding. Though mediation is not binding, it is the preferred method of achieving a settlement.
- Ongoing relationships – The process provides a potent opportunity to preserve and develop the relationship between the parties post-mediation.
