Mediation is an affordable alternative to attorneys. Mediators are neutral and do not chose a side. A mediators role is to ensure that there is effective communication between the parties and that a resolve is reached. Attorneys make their money from “pitting” the litigating parties from one another. The longer and more that the parties fight, the more money an attorney will make. A mediator is trained to facilitate communication and to remain neutral.
A Mediator who is trained and certified in Family Mediation can also act as a Parent Coordinator. A Parent Coordinators role is to help familes to resolve their time-sharing issues during the process of dissolution as well as afterwards. A court can also order a family to hire a Parent Coordinator. If a court issues an order to utilize a Parent Coordinator, the court will require an individual who is certified by the court as a Parent Coordinator. Parent Coordinators are very similar to Family Mediators. They do not take sides or favor one party over the other. Family mediation is a cost-effective resolution to using attorneys. The end result is a cost-effective solution to resolving the issues in a timely manner. Genesis Divorce is the Smart Divorce.
