Mediation and Conciliation
The following are examples of issues that can be addressed and resolved through mediation:
- Division of Marital Assets
- Division of Assets Between Life Partners
- Legal and Physical Custody of Children
- Parenting Plans
- Child Support
- College Expenses
- Health and Life Insurance
- Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements
- Equity Matters
Conciliation is another form of a negotiated settlement which involves evaluation and recommendations made by the Conciliator. Some parties choose this process in order to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each party’s position as well as receive legal information and assessment regarding likely outcomes in connection with a particular issue. The Conciliator still acts as a neutral third party; however, in this process, the Conciliator provides a legal analysis of all claims based upon extensive experience in the field of family law. The parties control the outcome and still have the benefit of avoiding high litigation costs. Our attorneys have the skills necessary to assist with navigation of the conciliation process through settlement.
