Mediation can save a considerable amount of time and money compared to prolonged court cases and legal fees. Additionally, each party has an opportunity to not only discuss the situation in a non-adversarial setting, but each party also has the chance to arrive at an agreeable solution as opposed to having a judgement imposed upon him or her by a court.
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution where parties agree to put forth a good faith effort in having their dispute settled outside of the courtroom with the assistant of a trained mediator. Kansas City Psychology Center, LLC offers certified mediation in both family and civil disputes.
