Family Law Mediation and Arbitration in Naples, FL

ADR - Alternative Dispute Resolution

When it comes to divorce, there are times when legal professionals will need to step in to help a couple to resolve their issues during a dissolution of marriage. Through the help of family law mediation and family law arbitration, this can be achieved. Charles Erickson has years of experience helping couples to resolve their differences to get a result that both parties are satisfied in.

Benefits of Family Law Mediation

Mediation is a much less formal situation than litigation. The issues in question are also talked about in a non-intimidating manner because of this informal setting. A brainstorming session is performed by a mediator with both parties in order to determine the best solution for each issue. This can create a more peaceful experience where both parties are allowed to explain their position and/or perspectives on issues leading to a better chance of solutions. Couples who agree to terms voluntarily are also more likely to follow through with those terms for a lifetime such as in issues of child support, child custody, and alimony. Best of all, mediation is private and confidential, as opposed to litigation. Any communication between parties is confidential as well. This process helps to limit feelings of victimization.

Understanding Family Law Arbitration

This is a dispute resolution method where a third party makes decisions about your finances when a relationship ends. During family law arbitration, facts and evidence are collected in order to make a decision based on this particular evidence. This is an alternative to court proceedings and is often used if no resolution has been made in family law mediation.

Either you or your partner can suggest arbitration, but both must agree to go through the process for it to begin. After you begin the process, you also can’t back out of it without your partner agreeing to end it. This arbitrator will deal with every stage of the process, meaning that you don’t have to explain everything again each time. You also can choose exactly what arbitrator you want representing you as well as what you want them to decide on, whether it is child support, child custody/visitation, alimony/spousal support, or property division. This process is oftentimes faster than standard court too.
