Today, there are a number of ways in which family law matters can be resolved. Most individuals will want to seek the most effective and cost-efficient way of reaching a resolution. In many cases, this can be achieved through mediation or collaborative law. Mediation puts the decision-making power in your hands, not in the hands of a judge. We will work to draft a Separation Agreement that meets your needs to keep legal expense to a minimum.
If you think that mediation may be right for your situation, you should speak to a lawyer at our Vancouver law firm. We are the legal team at Epstein Law, and we serve the needs of individuals throughout the Greater Vancouver Area in family law matters. We are experienced at handling divorce, same-sex divorce, dissolution of common law relationships, custody, access and child support matters and more.
We strive to provide legal services based on the foundation of integrity and honesty. At Epstein Law, you can expect dedication and support from your lawyer at all times.
Mediation and Collaborative Law
Mediation is an informal settlement process that is used outside the courtroom to resolve legal matters. Both parties can have legal representation and a neutral mediator will assist in reaching a settlement. The lawyers can also collaborate and work to help both parties reach an effective resolution. If a settlement cannot be reached, the parties can request mediation with a senior lawyer, who will work with the family mediator and strive to reach a resolution.
Benefits of Reaching a Settlement Outside the Courts
We strive to remain cognizant of our clients’ financial situation, and we work toward a resolution that is in both their personal and financial best interests. Resolving legal matters through mediation or collaborative law has a number of benefits. In many situations, mediation is less costly and less time consuming. It is a confidential process and often encouraged by the courts as a first attempt for resolving matters.
