Understanding Mediation

Mediation is a method of resolving legal conflicts outside of traditional courtroom litigation. This process provides parties with an opportunity to work collaboratively toward mutually beneficial solutions with the assistance of a neutral third-party mediator. Unlike litigation, which can be adversarial and time-consuming, mediation offers a more flexible and cost-effective approach to resolving disputes, allowing parties to maintain control over the outcome of their case.

Comprehensive Mediation Services

At Keller, Barrett & Higgins, we offer a range of mediation services to meet the diverse needs of our clients in Cincinnati, OH. Our comprehensive approach to dispute resolution encompasses:

  1. Divorce Mediation: Divorce can be emotionally fraught and financially draining. Our mediation services provide couples with a structured framework for discussing and resolving issues such as property division, child custody, visitation, and support in a non-adversarial manner. By working collaboratively with a mediator, couples can minimize conflict, maintain privacy, and avoid the stress and expense of litigation.
  2. Child Custody and Visitation Mediation: When parents are unable to agree on custody and visitation arrangements for their children, mediation can offer a constructive way forward. Our experienced mediators work with parents to develop parenting plans that prioritize the best interests of the children while addressing the unique needs and concerns of each family member.
  3. Property Division Mediation: Dividing marital assets and debts can be one of the most contentious aspects of divorce. Our mediation services help couples navigate the complexities of property division in a fair and equitable manner, allowing them to retain greater control over the outcome of their case.
  4. Parenting Plan Development: Crafting a parenting plan that works for all parties involved is essential for maintaining stability and promoting healthy parent-child relationships post-divorce. Our mediators assist parents in developing comprehensive parenting plans that address custody, visitation, decision-making authority, and other key issues with sensitivity and care.
  5. Post-Divorce Dispute Resolution: Even after a divorce is finalized, disputes may arise regarding issues such as child support modifications, visitation schedules, and parental relocations. Our mediation services offer a constructive means of resolving post-divorce conflicts efficiently and effectively, helping parties avoid the time, expense, and stress of returning to court.

Benefits of Mediation

Choosing mediation offers numerous benefits over traditional litigation, including:

Cost-Effectiveness: Mediation is typically more affordable than litigation, as they require fewer court appearances, less attorney time, and minimal discovery expenses.

Confidentiality: Unlike courtroom proceedings, which are a matter of public record, mediation sessions are private and confidential, allowing parties to discuss sensitive issues openly and candidly.

Control and Flexibility: Mediation allows parties to retain greater control over the outcome of their case, as they have the opportunity to actively participate in the decision-making process and tailor solutions to meet their unique needs and priorities.

Preservation of Relationships: By fostering open communication and collaboration, mediation can help preserve relationships between parties, particularly in family law matters where ongoing co-parenting or cohabitation is necessary.

Timeliness: Mediation can often be completed more quickly than litigation, as parties have greater flexibility in scheduling sessions and resolving issues outside of court.
