Family mediation is a collaborative method for ending family disputes quickly and inexpensively. Parents, adult children, and other family members are able to resolve their differences quickly - without expensive and hostile "win-lose" legal tactics.

How Does Family Mediation Work?

Upon the request of a family member, Out-of-Court Solutions explains the mediation process to the other family member(s) who are involved in the conflict, and invites them to participate.

The mediation begins with the mediator explaining certain rules and procedures, and asking the participants to share their individual perspectives, concerns, and goals. The sessions that follow involve a series of joint and separate conferences with the mediator helping participants communicate, negotiate, resolve issues, and reach agreement. Upon resolution, the mediator prepares a written agreement detailing the decisions made by the participants.

What Family Situations Should Be Mediated?

Mediation of the issues involved in divorce and legal separation reduces emotional stress, financial cost, and parental conflict. Couples make informed decisions about property rights, debts, custody, and support – without incurring the cost and adversity of two separate lawyers.

Post-Divorce Parenting & Support

Mediation greatly reduces the cost and expedites agreements concerning revisions of parenting plans, custody arrangements, and child support.

How does mediation differ from court-based divorce?

In mediation, couples decide what's best for them, rather than surrendering control to attorneys or a judge. They reach agreement based on their particular relationship, needs, and standards. This takes place in a safe, collaborative environment and is significantly less stressful than the adversarial, win-lose procedures involved in court-based proceedings.

Family-Related Businesses

Disagreements arising between family members doing business together are resolved quickly, inexpensively, and privately through mediation. Relationships are likely to be normalized and organizational success is enhanced.

Elder Care

Family mediation helps adult children identify and resolve the financial, medical, and other issues common to the care of elderly parents and other relatives. Privacy is assured and expense is minimized.

Estate / Inheritance

Mediation reduces the probability of family litigation stemming from inheritance and estate issues. The adversarial aspects of these disputes are eliminated, saving significant time and expense. helps you with Tickets in San Antonio , TX for San Antonio Symphony Orchestra: Beethoven & Mozart, Children of Bodom, Between The Buried & Me, Breathe Carolina at in Back Stage Live , and White Rabbit .
