Mediation provides families with a system of conflict resolution to enable both parties to come to an agreement with the assistance of an impartial third party- in this case, the family mediator. The mediator will work with both sides to come to a solution with each other in an environment away from the court. An environment that will promote understanding. The agreement will be subject to final approval by the family court judge.
In the case of a alimony, childcare, and visitation, the court refers the family to a mediator to work towards an agreement. The idea behind this is that with the mediator involved, both parties can come to an agreement without the need of a trial. Provided the parties can come to an agreement with the mediator that a judge signs off on- the agreement has the same legal value as a sentence does. The difference being that the cost and time of a trial was avoided. If the parties cannot come to an agreement, the trial will resume.
The purpose of mediation is to resolve, prevent, or minimize conflicts. This includes relationship problems between parents and teenagers, children, the separating or divorcing couple, disagreements regarding family conflicts, business,
or inheritance, as well as the difficulties that arise from carrying for disabled or elderly family members.
