Helping Litigants in Warner Robins Resolve Their Issues Through Civil and Domestic Mediation
Providing an opportunity for you to take the fate of your case into your own hands
Judicial circuits in Georgia are increasingly mandating that litigants attend mediation before bringing their case into court. Mediation provides parties with an opportunity to have more control over the outcome of their dispute. A ruling rendered by a judge or jury is unpredictable, so you do not really want them to make such a significant decision for you.
Will a mediator in central Georgia really help?
A mediator is a neutral third party who facilitates negotiations with you and the other party with the goal of reaching an acceptable compromise.
You are not required to reach an agreement in mediation, but you must make a good-faith effort to do so. Mediation allows the parties to have an opportunity to hear the argument and evidence that the other party is relying upon for the case. It allows for a faster opportunity for resolution to your dispute but, more importantly, it saves time and money in litigation.
What if the parties cannot resolve all the issues in mediation?
You and the other party may possibly be able to resolve the majority of the issues in mediation but not all of them. The agreement that is reached is put in writing and signed by all parties and their attorneys, if applicable. The agreement thereby becomes a binding and enforceable contract. Any issues that are not resolved in mediation are litigated. Again, this reduces your time in court and saves you money.
Providing the mediation experience that Georgia litigants need
Parties are welcome to attend mediation with or without an attorney; however, when a attorney acts as a mediator, they do not act as an attorney for either party, and they do not give legal advice. Thus, parties must consult with their own independent attorneys if they require legal advice.
