We Provide Impartial Assistance And Can Help You Save Time And Money
If you are going through a divorce, or have an issue such as child visitation to resolve, we can help. With the help of our trained mediator, we can provide you with impartial assistance in settling your dispute — assistance that provides many benefits, including saving you time and money.
Andrea Goble is a trained and Supreme Court Certified Rule 31 Mediator. She is also an attorney who practices family law. Because she commands this dual and singular perspective, she can see relevant issues from both your side and that of your spouse, as well as how a judge will reasonably evaluate them in court.
Through mediation or collaborative law, we can help you resolve your issue in a way that may be more satisfactory than if resolved in court. Through adversarial litigation, you might wait indefinitely while lawyers work out a court settlement. The mediation process can take as little as a few hours or a few days.
We Help You Determine The Outcome
With the help of a trained mediator, the parties themselves determine the outcome.
The mediator doesn't represent either party solely, but helps them together find common ground and make decisions that benefit them both. Attorneys can be present during the process to give legal advice to either party. Final decisions are reached in consultation with those lawyers.
Mediation is required when child custody is contested. In this situation, mediation can help foster a more cooperative relationship between the parents. A relationship that is relatively free of conflict is better for everyone concerned — especially the children.
