Using Mediation To Resolve Your Divorce
As it occurs outside of the court process, mediation is another option for people who are considering a divorce. Mediators can help lead the parties’ discussion regarding any element of their divorce or other matter, and can navigate power imbalances, uncertainty or miscommunication.
Family Law Mediation Serving Pittsburgh, Wexford And Allegheny County
I am attorney Law Offices of Lisa Standish, and as a mediator, I believe it is important for individuals to make their own decisions. Sometimes individuals need assistance in their communication styles or negotiations. I create an environment for my clients so they can work together and come to their own agreements in a mutually respectable and safe manner. By approaching my clients sensitively and practically, I am able to offer a layer of common sense that sometimes goes missing due to the emotional nature of family law.
Family law issues are emotional. As a lawyer and mediator, I do not try to bury these emotions or disregard them. Rather, we organize them so we understand where they are best served and how we can use the facts to reach a resolution that supports the interests of your family and your particular situation.
I am committed to giving my clients throughout Pennsylvania the respect and understanding they deserve as I educate them on the interworking of family law. As a mediator, I do not represent or advocate for either party in a dispute. I advise both parties to obtain their own outside counsel for legal advice.
