Greene County Mediation Lawyers

Benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution in the Greater Miami Valley

Courts in Ohio may require divorcing couples to attend mediation to resolve disputes. Mediation offers several benefits in saving time and money. At Crossman & McNamee, LLC, our mediation attorneys in Greene County can advise you about important issues and provide the legal guidance you need to help you resolve your divorce without a prolonged, contentious, and expensive court battle.

If you want to learn more about mediation, call (937) 468-3796 for a consultation.

The Advantages of Mediation

Divorce mediation involves a neutral third party facilitating negotiation between the divorcing spouses to help them reach an agreement regarding the central issues in their divorce. If an agreement cannot be reached during mediation, the issues may be settled in court. However, many couples prefer to reach an agreement rather than leaving their futures in the hands of a judge who doesn’t know their family.

The benefits of mediation include:

  • Resolving issues on your own without having a judge make decisions for your family
  • A faster resolution
  • Less expensive than a court trial
  • Reduced hostility between parties
  • Les conflict is better for parents and children

It is not necessary to have an attorney present at mediation meetings. However, if you want to have legal advice during the negotiations, you can have your attorney attend the meeting with you. Our Greene County mediation lawyers can provide legal advice and help you make important decisions prior to mediation or attend mediation with you.

The Mediation Process

The role of the mediator is to facilitate communication and negotiation, not to make the final decision in a dispute. The process often begins with each person describing what they believe to be the disputed issues and their position on that issue. The goal is to have the parties reach a mutually agreeable resolution. Mediation allows each party to participate in resolving disputes without having a judge make important decisions for their families.

Please contact us online or at (937) 468-3796 to discuss the possibility of using mediation to resolve your divorce dispute. We offer services to the greater Miami Valley.
