Scottsdale Mediation Attorneys Helping Couples Find Solutions
Sometimes divorcing or separating couples find themselves trying to work out differences without the courts, but it just seems impossible. The time during the divorce process is one example where two people have to come to an agreement, but this can be very difficult. While it may seem easier just to give up and let the court settle the disagreements during the dissolution of a marriage or other family law matter, we have found that when spouses work together to agree, they can find much more satisfaction and even discover better terms than they would through litigation. Mediation, or the process where the individuals meet with a third party to settle their differences, can be a wonderful alternative to finding a compromise in the questions of family law. Our clients use mediation to settle a number of issues such as custody, spousal maintenance, visitation rights, property division, and so on.
The attorneys at The Sampair Group are ready to help you if you should need to go to court, but we also recognize that there may be a better way for you to find answers to your family matters. If you wish to try resolving your issues with a mediator, we will do everything possible to help you and the other individual(s) communicate and resolve the differences between you. Whenever you are involved in a family dispute that may require legal intervention, it is a good idea to consider mediation first to save you the time and hassle of going through the courts. Schedule a free initial consultation today at 623-777-3909 and see how the skilled and understanding mediators at The Sampair Group can help you.
Can Mediation Resolve Different Kinds of Family Law Cases?
The field of family law covers a wide variety of types of cases, including the dissolution of marriages as well as protecting individuals’ rights as parents, grandparents, and the right to be safe from abuse of any kind. Many people think that mediation only works in cases of divorce, and while it can be extremely helpful in those situations, it can also work in nearly any family law case. Some of the areas that we use mediation for are:
- Legal separation
- Resolving matters within the divorce, such as alimony, child support, or custody
- Prenuptial agreements
- Modifications of court orders
- Parenting plans and visitation time
- Grandparents’ rights
- Annulment of a marriage
We have found that nearly any family legal issue can be resolved through mediation. But this is usually very difficult to achieve without the help of a professional mediator such as those at The Sampair Group. Talking to our talented attorneys may be the smartest step you take in the negotiations for any family law matter you may be going through, so contact us right away.
What Will Happen in the Mediation Process?
When families have problems that require legal action, many times, the real problem is that they are not communicating with each other. This is actually one of the strongest effects of mediation: each party can listen and be listened to. Having a neutral party present that knows how to mediate a dispute very often leads to everyone finally understanding the needs and desires of the other parties, leading to real solutions.
What the mediation process looks like may be very different from one case to another, as each family’s needs may be vastly different from those of any other family. Whatever your needs or situation, the mediation attorneys at The Sampair Group can help you communicate your feelings and needs to your family members, possibly bringing you to a compromise that will make everyone happy. Sometimes clients are afraid to use mediation because they think they will have to sit in the same room as their opponent, and they do not feel comfortable doing so. However, this is not necessary at all, as our attorneys can easily work through the mediation in what is known as a caucus. In this setting, the individuals meet separately with the mediator, who then relays messages back and forth. No matter how mediation ends up working out for you, you can be sure that your voice will be heard and that our family mediators will be on your side to help you find healthy solutions in your divorce or other family law matter.
Can My Spouse and I Avoid Divorce Through Mediation?
While divorce is simply the best option in some situations, many people want to try to save their marriage, and they hope that mediation is the answer. Happily, we find that mediation and counseling, together with the strong will of the couple to stay married, can save the marriage. Divorcing your spouse is not an easy or pleasant process, even though it does save many people from bad marriages. Disputes may come up regarding many issues during the divorce, such as child support, child custody, and property division, not to mention the huge life change of losing your spouse. To many people, mediation is a far more agreeable alternative than going to court, and they hope that they can begin to see eye to eye with their significant other along the way. Our talented mediation attorneys can help, and should the couple end up needing a divorce; they will already have legal representation to help avoid as much court interference as possible, making the process go more quickly and easily. Call today to schedule a free consultation and see how mediation can help you and your spouse.
Can Family Law Attorneys Help You with Conflict Resolution Through Mediation?
Taking a family law issue to court can be an extremely difficult process, causing lots of stress and eating up precious family funds. During a divorce, many life-changing decisions must be made that will affect the well-being and lifestyle of your children and yourself. Many people believe that the only way to arrive at decisions is through the courts, but this method is both expensive and time-consuming. Mediation is a much more positive alternative that can lead to a healthy divorce and sometimes even save a marriage. If you are trying to deal with legal separation or other family issues and want to reach a settlement faster than with a judge and jury, you need a mediation attorney on your side who can help you get real results.
Family conflicts are stressful no matter the situation surrounding them. Many divorce attorneys may push for the use of the courts without considering other alternatives such as mediation. But you can find better ways of settling disputes. The Sampair Group knows how to get clients legal advice and help to overcome disagreements as quickly and easily as possible. Call us today, and we can talk to you about getting mediators to help in your family law matters at 623-777-3909.
