Mediation is a way for you and the other parties to come to an agreement that respects each of your needs. Going to trial may be expensive and time-consuming, and you are leaving the final decision in the hands of a judge. Mediation, however, guides both parties toward a mutual agreement, putting the control back into your hands.
Our attorney Randi J. Vladimer is an experienced and trusted family law mediator, having undergone vigorous training and certification to help family law clients resolve their issues out of court. Our firm can guide both parties through all the options available to ensure the most favorable outcome for the entire family.
What The Mediation Process Is Like
The process of mediation in Pennsylvania involves meeting with the other parties and a licensed mediator to measure your goals against theirs. By doing so, you can possibly avoid excessive attorney fees for court appearances. The process also provides great flexibility that litigation may not necessarily provide.
In mediation, an attorney will act as a third party who will be impartial and will assess how best to construct a desirable outcome that meets each of your needs. Disputes in family law can be emotionally challenging and may lead parties to settle on terms they do not agree with or understand, especially in cases involving alimony, child support, child custody and asset division.
Randi will ensure that you understand the terms, and we will guide both parties toward a decision that respects and upholds everybody’s rights. The result is often more positive in the long term, as it takes both parties’ needs into account and minimizes the risk of disputes occurring in the future.
