Our legal team in Colorado Springs represents clients in all dispute resolution models, including court (traditional litigation), mediation, arbitration, settlement conferences, and appeals. Mediation is an option to consider because it tends to reduce the amount of conflict between the two parties as well as the expense involved with elaborate divorce hearings and proceedings.
The resolutions that come from mediation often result in positive outcomes for both parties, instead of one person feeling as if they got the proverbial short end of the stick. Achieving this level of satisfaction and closure is crucial, especially when there are children involved. Both parents should feel at peace with what’s been decided to avoid tension, resentment, and arguments that will negatively affect the child.
Mediation is often sought when the original agreements need a “tune-up.” When financial or life circumstances change, or the needs of a child evolve, couples may want to revisit the arrangement with the time and expense involved in going back to court. In cases like these, mediation is an efficient and less arduous process.
