Family mediation is a process for helping family members who have a dispute or a tough challenge (such as elder care planning) decide together what to do. The mediator, a trained professional, helps family members talk constructively about things that are hard to talk about, sort out what matters most to the people involved and why those things matter, consider a variety of options for meeting everyone’s needs, and develop a solution.
The problem most often brought to family mediators is the question of how to settle a divorce. By working with one mediator to settle the matter instead of working with two lawyers, who may be inclined to help the parties fight with each other much more than necessary, the parties stay in control of what gets decided, avoid a lot of emotional distress, save thousands of dollars, and avoid wasting a lot of time.
All of the mediators in Colin Family Mediation Group are well trained, experienced, and certified by the Supreme Court of Virginia to mediate family matters.
