What is Mediation?

Many couples find they do not want to undergo the traditional, adversarial court process. For couples who are willing to make a full financial disclosure, in addition to being willing to compromise, mediation could be an excellent, cost-effective alternative.

The Benefits of Mediation Include:

Confidentiality

The matters discussed at mediation are strictly confidential. A judge will only know the final settlement reached at mediation, not the details of the mediation session nor the reasons why the parties selected mediation.

Honesty

At mediation, parties are able to discuss issues directly and candidly.

Less conflict

Parties who are able to mediate generally experience less conflict and are able to keep their children from becoming emotionally entangled in their parents’ conflict.

Enforcement

Parties who amicably reach settlements are much more likely to strictly enforce the terms of their agreement, which, in turn, minimizes the chances of repeatedly returning to court for enforcement, modification, or clarification.

Timeliness

Most mediation sessions are concluded in either one-half (½) of a day or one (1) full day. Alternatively, litigation, even for simple matters, can take between four (4) months and one (1) year to complete. At times, complex litigation cases consume more than one (1) year.

Cost-Effectiveness

Because parties use a significantly smaller fraction of an attorney’s time for mediation, the cost of mediation is nominal in comparison to the cost of litigation.

Final Settlement

An overwhelming majority of cases mediated by John T. Kelleher, Esq., have resulted in a final settlement of all issues.
