What is mediation?
Mediation is a dispute resolution method where a trained and experienced person meets with the parties and attempts to help the parties reach a compromise. A mediator is typically someone who has experience with the law and the types of issues involved in the case. Because a mediator has no interest in the outcome of the case, they can provide insight into each party’s position. This will help the party’s better understand the strengths and weaknesses of their respective positions in the case.
A mediator will confer with each party and exchange settlement offers. They will offer their perspective to help each party assess what is fair under the circumstances.
How is mediation beneficial in a probate case?
Probate matters are governed by specific laws and rules. A mediator will understand how those laws apply to your case and can utilize that knowledge to facilitate a resolution. Because probate cases often involve disputes over property where emotions may be high, a mediator can assist in finding ways to help the parties address the issues in a civil manner.
Mediation allows the parties to have more control over the outcome. It can be less expensive than going into court and a resolution can be reached in a more timely manner.
