Mediation whether it’s virtual or in person, may be able to help you over the holiday season! The holidays are a time for family and friends. It’s usually a happy time for most of us, but for those separated from family or dealing with major disputes, it can be a difficult time of year. They can feel alone and isolated. If you or someone you know are dealing with a dispute or disagreement, suggest mediation.
Mediation can help resolve conflicts like parenting issues, workplace disputes, neighborhood issues, and more. Mediation can be more affordable than going to court. It’s also confidential, fast, and convenient for those who use the service and best of all, the decision about what to do remains with you.
Many mediations begin and end with only a single meeting. While this may vary based on your specific needs, mediation is almost always a far more expedient process than relying on courts. At its heart, mediation is simply a conversation. You bring to the table what you want and leave with what you need. No fuss, no unnecessary formalities. Your mediators provide a productive structure and help you explore possibilities, but the movement and mood are yours to define.
