Tips for Prevailing at Mediation
Mediation offers people a less expensive way of resolving disputes for their family law case. However, few people actually know how to use mediation to help them in their case.
Oftentimes, parents are either ordered or agree upon undergoing mediation in an effort to solve some of their parenting differences. Mediation can be a good thing, but, if not handled properly, can become a waste of time, frustrating and cause further problems for litigation. It is our firm belief that 90% of any case is won or lost outside of the court room. Proper planning is a must if you want to see success in your custody case. Here are three tips to help you prevail in your mediation process.
1. Understand the deeper purpose of mediation. While the bigger picture of solving your problem is accurate, you must understand that mediation can serve other purposes like testing the strength of your case.
2. Go in with a plan. Many people just leave it up to the mediator to start the discussion. Take control of the discussion by going in the mediation session with a written plan of what you want and why.
3. Don’t agree with anything you cannot live with permanently.
