Mediation has the potential to offer a faster and more cost-effective path to the resolution of your case than litigation. Disputing parties can communicate and negotiate confidentially through a neutral mediator, and they can reach agreements that might not have been possible had the matter gone to trial. We can represent you during mediation, or serve as a mediator in your dispute.
Mediation vs. Litigation
Mediation is not neighbor or marriage counseling, nor is it a lawsuit. The ultimate goal of mediation is for both sides of a dispute to arrive at an agreement they voluntarily accept. A neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates communication between the two sides so that they can come to an agreement. Discussions are typically confidential. While both sides may be represented by their own attorneys, the mediator is not a judge. He or she has no authority to impose a ruling and will not provide legal advice to either side. While mediation offers distinct advantages over litigation in certain situations, not all disputes can be resolved in this manner. Dillon Legal Group can advise you on your whether your case is amenable to mediation.
In Johnson and many other other Indiana counties, the court may require you to first attempt to resolve your divorce through mediation. By communicating through a mediator, both parties have an opportunity to exercise more control over the end result. Clients can negotiate terms that are mutually agreeable rather than risk having a court impose terms that are less favorable. Even if you believe that your disputes are too great to solve, the knowledge you gain through your experience with a mediator can be beneficial going forward.
