Mediation in family law disputes
Conducting a procedure on a family law matter easily leads to a sharpening of relationships in practice. Not only between the parties involved, but also with other family members. To prevent these effects, mediation can be a good alternative. Under the expert guidance of a mediator, who promotes good cooperation and communication between the parties, you and the other party come to a solution.
The value of mediation in family law disputes is that you come to a solution together. So there is no judge who has to make a decision. Sharp position choice in a procedure can be omitted. You determine together what the solution should be. This prevents unnecessary damage to family relationships, or it is much more limited than in the case of a procedure where the judge makes a decision.
