Mediation may save you in the end

Sometimes a dispute does not require the lengthy legal process most individuals usually hear about. In fact, many families and the North Dakota court system overall are increasingly shifting focus to more amicable and cooperative alternatives to dispute resolution. Mediation is one of these alternatives.

Through mediation you can:

  • Retain more control over the decision-making process and the outcome of your dispute
  • Preserve important relationships so you can continue to work collaboratively after your dispute is resolved
  • Minimize the legal costs associated with litigation and traditional courtroom proceedings
  • Create a more customized agreement that better meets your needs as an individual or family

Your Qualified Neutral Mediator and Certified Parenting Coordinator

At Brazil Law Office, PLLC, we have seen how mediation can help individuals and families — particularly those involved in divorce or estate disputes — achieve more favorable outcomes than litigation can offer.

When you work with our office, we will analyze your case, listen to your goals and help you through the mediation process. Attorney Brazil is a Qualified Neutral Mediator in North Dakota, and can serve as a Mediator in both North Dakota and Minnesota cases. This means she can serve as an independent party who can draft a mutually beneficial agreement founded in family law guidelines.

In these cases, she is not serving as an attorney to either party. In order to participate in mediation, both parties must consent to mediation as a voluntary dispute resolution method.

What if divorce mediation doesn't work?

Of course, mediation does not always completely resolve a family law issue. When acting as a mediator, Attorney Brazil will be clear when discussing the agreements you and your spouse have or have not reached. If an agreement cannot be reached on a specific issue, Attorney Brazil will identify this disagreement and provide her insight into each side of the disagreement to help you make an informed decision.

Before you give in to your spouse's demands or dig in your heels about a certain issue, consider the benefits mediation can offer you and your loved ones. Mediation can be used in a wide range of divorce, custody and post-judgment issues.
