When Is Family Law Mediation Necessary?

Any time you and your ex are unable to resolve a family law matter, family mediation can be an excellent resource to utilize. If you share children, these matters can extend to these situations as well.

If you want to ensure that you are able to have a say in working out a family law dispute, mediation is the best way to do it. If you want to learn more about the different situations that warrant family mediation, or if you want to prepare for what is to come if you cannot come together, read on.

Working with Your Former Partner

Whether you are dealing with a former spouse, partner, or the other parent of your children, family law issues can arise in any situation where you need to work together to resolve a disagreement.

This might include a fight over the division of your property and assets in a divorce, agreeing to a child custody plan, determining how much child or spousal support will be paid, and more. It is critical that you do everything you can to find a solution to these problems, because if you do not, your case will be handled by the courts.

What to Do if You Cannot Come to an Arrangement

When we say that your case will be handled by the courts, we mean that the decision will no longer be either of yours and will instead be sent to the judge for a decision. Both parties will have the opportunity to explain their reasoning to the judge, and the judge will issue orders accordingly. As you can imagine, this often leads to one family member being let down by the decision.
