Mediation is the best method for settling a divorce, child custody or family law dispute. Why is settlement a better option than taking your case all the way to trial? Among other things, such as the obvious saving money and saving time, it is a way to control the outcome of your case. In mediation, the mediator is not able to decide your case for you, rather the mediator is there to ensure that if there is any way for the parties to control the outcome of the case, that it can happen. If you take your case to trial, you are allowing the judge or magistrate to decide your case for you. Those individuals are not going to learn everything about you, or your spouse, yet you will be giving total control to them to decide your case. They may make the right decision, but they may not. Usually, settling your divorce, child custody or family law dispute amicably is the most satisfying way to resolve the case. Heidi Town can help get you there.
