Mediation is a process whereby a neutral third person, a mediator, acts to encourage and help bring about the resolution of a dispute between two or more parties. It is a relaxed, informal and non-adversarial process with the purpose of helping the disputing parties reach a mutually acceptable and voluntary agreement, leaving both parties happier in the end. In mediation, decision-making authority rests with the parties. The role of the mediator includes, but is not limited to: assisting the parties in identifying the issues, fostering joint problem solving and exploring settlement alternatives. To accomplish the goals of mediation, the path is towards cooperation and communication and in so doing, reducing the hostility and increasing the peace. With the help of a trained mediator, there is an alternative to the stress, aggravation, cost and emotionally charged trail of litigation.
As a trained, certified Family mediator, Mr. Willman has helped couples amicably resolve their divorce issues and take control of their lives. Mediation helps the parties work together, keeping the focus on the best interests of the children. Divorce litigation is extremely costly, both in terms of legal expenses and emotions. Mediation is an alternative to the stress, aggravation and emotionally charged trail of litigation which can potentially have significant and severe consequences on the family relationships.
