Mediation Can Work For You In Settling Disputes

Mediation is sometimes used by the Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC to settle marital issues when negotiations have bogged down for one reason or another or an opponent has taken one or more unreasonable positions in negotiations. We have found that employing one of the many outstanding retired judges as a mediator in such cases can be a cost-effective and extremely useful way to bring about a settlement.

In a mediation, each spouse is typically represented by their own trained, competent divorce and family lawyer — such as our firm — while an experienced third-party mediates the dispute. The goal of the mediation process is to work through the most complex, difficult issues — such as child support, child custody, and spousal support — are addressed without the need for the accusations and blame that often arise in court proceedings. This eliminates the negative emotions and aggression that often arise in litigation and allows you to create a solution that best fits your family and your future, rather than being forced into a decision that may not meet your needs.

Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC have extensive training and experience representing service members and government personnel in mediation and in the courtroom. Our goal is to achieve your goals in this difficult time and position you to go forward well.
