Is Mediation Right for Me?

May 13, 2022 | Blog

Truly there is no right or wrong answer when asking this question. It is all subjective to each situation and each person. But mediation can solve a multitude of disputes in a cost-effective, timely,and more often than not, peaceful manner.


Mediation can help with custody, visitation schedules, child support, parenting communications and access, but it is most known for separations. If you are going through any of these and you want to avoid the typically messy, nasty and expensive process of litigation, then mediation would be your #1 option. 


However, it is important to realize what is typically required for mediation to work, so if these key factors are put in place then mediation is definitely the right option for you:

  • Remember that mediation is about putting your differences aside and coming together to solve an issue. 
  • You have to be willing to compromise. If you are both willing to give a little, you can both get a lot out of the process. 
  • Listen to each other and compromise. Mediation is a time to hear what the other person is saying, and also your chance to be heard. Having a mediator on hand will allow for both parties to say what they need to say, without going off the rails. 

Whether you are going through a separation, or just want more clarity with children and custody, mediation can be an amazing option for you.
