Mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This is a voluntary and private settlement process designed to help the parties make informed decisions in an amicable way. Mediation provides a cost effective alternative to the classic adversarial litigation setting in which to handle a dispute.
The mediator is an independent party whose function is to be helpful to those parties who want to discuss their issues with the goal of settlement in mind. A mediator will help you communicate clearly and make sure that your opinion is heard, while also assisting the parties in writing down their agreement and making those agreements a court order if necessary. The attorneys at the Law Office of Cecil and Cianci, PC, are trained to mediate family law matters, whether it be the entire dissolution or simply a portion of the issues between the parties.
