Tarrant County Family Law Attorney Helping Family Members With Mediation of Legal Disputes

Legal disputes involving family members can be difficult to resolve. These situations often involve strong emotions, and families may struggle to find solutions that will allow them to maintain good relationships while also addressing financial issues and other matters that affect them. While these issues may be resolved in court through litigation, this is often not the most effective solution, and it can be very expensive while leading to unsatisfactory results. In many cases, it is more beneficial for families to find ways to settle family law disputes outside of court. Mediation can be one of the best ways of handling these situations.

Daniel R. Bacalis, P.C. understands the importance of family, and we know how confusing and stressful it can be to address legal matters that affect family members. We work to help our clients understand how they can resolve disputes and whether using mediation will be the best solution in their situation. During the mediation process, we can provide legal guidance to ensure that a person will understand their rights and the ways they can protect their interests. We can also help determine whether litigation or other options may be needed in cases where agreements cannot be reached or where mediation may not be appropriate.

Benefits of Family Mediation

Mediation can be a good solution in multiple different types of family law cases. Divorce mediation is commonly used by spouses who are looking to negotiate a settlement quickly and easily while minimizing legal expenses. However, mediation can also be used by unmarried parents who need to address issues related to child custody and child support, ex-spouses who are looking to address post-divorce modifications, families who need to address grandparents' rights to visitation with grandchildren, and multiple other types of cases.

The mediation process is meant to help the parties take a non-adversarial approach to resolving their disputes. They will work with a mediator, who will serve as a neutral third party, guiding the parties through productive discussions, helping them identify legal issues that will need to be addressed, and suggesting compromises that both sides may be satisfied with. The parties will make the final decisions in their case, and they will need to be in full agreement on how all of their legal issues will be handled.

Mediation can benefit families in multiple ways, including:

  • Emphasis on communication and cooperation - Since the parties will need to work together to reach agreements, mediation will encourage them to find solutions that will benefit everyone involved. In addition to resolving their current issues, the parties can establish a relationship that will allow them to cooperate with each other in the future as they address their family's ongoing needs.
  • Control over the outcome - Rather than leaving the decisions in their case up to a judge, the parties can work together to make all decisions on their own. This can make sure they will be fully satisfied with the outcome of their case, and the parties will be more likely to abide by the decisions made and avoid disputes in the future.
  • Reducing costs and the time needed to resolve a case - Depending on the complexity of the issues that need to be addressed, parties may be able to reach a settlement through just a few mediation sessions. This can help them avoid a drawn-out, expensive legal process involving multiple court appearances.
