Several Benefits of Choosing Mediation over Litigation
- Rather than attacking one another you and the other party can concentrate your efforts on effectively communicating and achieving an agreement. Attorney Christina Green is a Florida Certified Family Law Mediator who can guide you through the Mediation process with skilled knowledge.
- Litigation can be expensive and very unpredictable. Mediation is far less costly in time and money. You and the other party spend your time working to create resolutions instead of filing motions and costly court documents. Litigation can result in one being satisfied with the outcome, but dissatisfied with the unpredictable costs that can come alongside fighting inside the courtroom. Furthermore you can be required to pay the other sides attorney fees, depending on what the court decides.
- Litigating your case in court can be stressful and bring about bitterness. Putting the final decision in the courts hands can also bring about uncertainty of what your future holds. In Litigation, if one party is happy, this can mean the other is not, and could potentially file an appeal. Mediation can help you avoid these stresses.
- Meditation is planned and carried out with both parties timelines in consideration, rather then awaiting a court date. Litigation can take anywhere between six months to several years to reach a final settlement. Mediation is completed much quicker, often times in as few as six months.
- Generally Speaking, Mediation clients are the ones that decide the terms of their agreements with the assistance of the mediator. Nothing is final, unless BOTH parties agree to the terms. With Mediation, you can avoid a possible outcome of a judge ordering something you don’t like.
- Mediation takes place in a Mediators office and not in a courtroom. Litigation on the other hand takes place in a public courtroom and any ugly allegations brought about will be added to public record. Mediation allows you avoid that.
