Are You Focused on Reaching Fair Resolution Without Further Escalating Conflict?
Often times in Missouri, couples that cannot settle custody issues on their own are required to participate in mediation. The primary reasons people choose mediation include objectives such as:
- Keeping control of critical, far-reaching decisions within the family, rather than allowing a judge to make them based on far more limited information.
- Arriving at agreements that are more likely to be sustainable than those handed down after litigation, because both parties were involved in forging those agreements.
- Containing costs and minimizing intense conflict that can adversely affect everyone involved, including children.
Mediation provides a structured process that is less rigidly formal than litigation, allowing for participation by those who ultimately must live with the outcome of the final court documents.
