In the sensitive and often emotional environment of family law, mediation offers an excellent opportunity to come to a mutual agreement before the matter ever gets to court.
It is not always in everyone’s best interests for family law disputes to come before the courts.
With the numbers of cases in the courts, delays can be extremely lengthy. In an emotive environment like family law a quicker resolution of a dispute and an early settlement means less disruption to lives and less negative impact on the future relationship between the disputing parties.
Additionally, some matters are best not aired before the courts where private details may come under a Judge’s duty to report adding complications and further delays.
