Mediation Attorneys in Charlotte
Helping You & Your Spouse Come to a Peaceful Agreement
In North Carolina, mediation is encouraged and often required in certain
cases by state law and local rules. The North Carolina Court System has
different options and programs for those who wish to take part in mediation,
or for those who are court mandated to do so.
According to the North Carolina Mediated Settlement Conference Program
(MSCP), mediation is “designed to offer parties, with the help of
their attorneys and a mediator, an opportunity and the support they need
to settle their cases earlier.”
child custody is a process in which a trained mediator acts as a neutral third party
to help parents develop a parenting agreement that will provide for a
custodial and visitation schedule, how children will spend time with each
parent, how big decisions will be made, who will make those decisions,
and any other special issues that may arise as it relates to the children.
divorce and property division works similarly, where the neutral third party will
help the parties come to an agreement on the division of assets, debts,
the marital home, retirement accounts, and the like. Settlement terms,
if reached, will be on those decided by the parties—not the mediator.
In other words, it is not binding.
Mediation can be a great opportunity to resolve issues between the parties.
Litigation is not always necessary, and it can be painful, time-consuming,
and expensive. As such, mediation offers an alternative solution that
can produce much more satisfying results. A skilled mediator in Charlotte
can guide you throughout every stage of the legal process. In addition
to mediation, there are other alternative forms of dispute resolution,
including arbitration and collaborative law.
