Going to court can be intimidating, and in most cases, it has become commonplace, if not mandatory, for courts to order parties to mediation before their cases will be set for trial. The majority of the time, this is a positive step.
At Zahn Family Law, we take time to thoroughly prepare for each mediation as thoroughly as if the case were going to trial in order to achieve the best possible result for our clients. Mediation allows parties to determine what their agreement will be without a judge who doesn’t know their circumstances making final decisions about the parties’ lives and children. It is confidential, non-confrontational, far less expensive and much less emotionally trying, than the stress of going to trial to resolve a case.
