Use Mediation To Calmly Find Favorable Solutions

If you are facing a divorce or another complex family law issue, you may wish to maintain as amicable a relationship as possible with your partner – especially if you have children. Traditional litigation can quickly make any legal matter contentious. If you wish to preserve good relations with your spouse or parenting partner, then consider mediation.

At The Law Firm of J. Hector Moreno, Jr. & Associates, our founding attorney, J. Hector Moreno, Jr., has helped numerous clients use mediation to reach mutually satisfactory solutions to family law problems. With more than 20 years of legal experience, he has the invaluable ability to help clients calmly work together.

What To Know About Mediation

In mediation, spouses come together with a neutral mediator to resolve important issues in their separation or divorce, child custody case or another family law case. Each spouse has their own attorney to advocate for them. The mediator is usually a divorce attorney who has special training in family law mediation.

What Are The Benefits Of Mediation?

Mediation can have several distinct advantages over traditional litigation. These include:

  • Cost-efficiency: Mediation tends to be less expensive than a trial, though this varies case by case.
  • Control: In mediation, spouses determine the final result instead of leaving it to a family law judge.
  • Privacy: Rather than taking your case to a public court, mediation allows you to keep matters private.
  • Amicability: Trials are necessarily adversarial. However, mediation allows you to collaborate with your partner.

If you are interested in one or more of these benefits, then mediation might be right for you. Discuss your case with our attorney to learn more about your options.
