Looking for an alternative to a long drawn out divorce? Divorce Mediation is Joel Overlund's specialty and designed specifically to reach better resolutions for both parties!
When it comes to divorce mediation, Joel, as a trained, neutral 3rd party mediator, would help parties understand the law involved in their case, and guide them toward a mutually agreed upon fair and just resolution. Mediation allows parties to come together and discuss issues without the threat of fighting it out in court. With 30+ years of family law experience, Joel is well versed in family law litigation. However, he believes that mediation, in most cases, has a better outcome than does litigation.
Mediators have no power to decide the issues for the parties but they provide an environment for respectful discussion. Mediation is voluntary and each party must state their good faith intention to participate in the mediation. It is understood between the parties and the mediator that the mediation will be strictly confidential. Mediation discussions, any draft resolutions and any unsigned mediated agreements shall not be admissible in any court or other contested proceedings. Each party agrees to fully and honestly disclose all relevant information so the discussion can move forward. It is the goal of the mediator to allow the decision making be that of the parties. The mediator is there to guide the discussion. Unfortunately, mediation, being voluntary, does not always work and sometimes other options need to be explored.
