Mediation

Missouri Certified Family law mediator

Tired of fighting that goes nowhere? Do you want to try a better approach? Are you tired of having your life in limbo? Are you ready for answers so you can move on? Reaching an agreement with your ex can give your control and certainty about your future. When compared to litigation, mediation is generally faster, less expensive, and produces better outcomes for families.

A mediator is a specially trained lawyer or counselor who works as a neutral party with families in legal conflict to reach an agreement that is best for your family. The mediator does not represent either party but helps to guide the parties to resolve their legal issues. In mediation the parties identify and prioritize the issues that need attention. Then, the parties brainstorm options and possible solutions. Depending on the complexity of the case, you may need more than one mediation session to come to an agreement.

Mediation can work for you even if you cannot stand to be in the same room as your ex. It is not always and easy or unemotional process. Mediators understand the emotional component of family law issues and can redirect you away from chaos and towards a solution. No matter where you are at in the process, Benner Law can help you and your ex move on.
