The issues covered in family law are some of the most difficult topics couples and families will face. Many individuals approaching a family law matter may want an alternative option to the traditional court process. Attorney Amber M. Ragonese provides mediation services as a neutral lawyer mediator guiding parties through necessary decisions and required documents and helps facilitate settlement discussions, effective negotiations, and final agreements
Through the mediation process, Attorney Ragonese will provide education and resources to help identify goals and resolve conflicts with limited court involvement. When appropriate, the mediator will offer parties options for third party professional resources to specifically address their unique interests, needs, and questions.
The mediator will meet with both parties together – in person or via video conferencing – to navigate through the entire case process and ensure all court required paperwork is completed accurately. The process is voluntary, confidential, and cooperative. Parties can save significant amounts of time, money, and stress through working together for the benefit of the family rather than having a court official issue orders that will impact your family’s future. Mediation allows parties to make informed decisions, promote healthy relationships, maintain control over the outcome of their case and often avoid future disputes in court.
Mediation is an option for all practice areas our firm serves, including:
- Divorce/Legal Separation
- Post judgment Modification to Custody, Placement, Child Support, Maintenance
- Grandparent’s Rights
