Johnson City Family Law Mediation

If you and another individual are unable to come to an agreement on important family law issues, mediation is an option that will provide you with an opportunity to craft your own solutions instead of having a third party make important decisions that will affect the rest of your life.

Washington County Child Custody Mediation

If you don’t come to an agreement on the matters at hand, your case will be taken to court where a judge will make the decisions for you. This takes the control out of your hands and gives a third party the responsibility for making decisions about important matters. No one knows more about your family, assets and liabilities than you do. The opportunity to negotiate outside of court gives you more control over your future. To arrange a free initial consultation to discuss the details of your legal matter, contact the firm online or by calling 423-926-9193.

Why Mediate?

Mediation is required by Tennessee Statute in most cases where the parties are unable to agree. But to most clients the most important reason to mediate is that it saves time, hard feelings, and in many cases money.

Mediation is the client’s opportunity to craft their own agreed solution instead of having the Judge do so. The mediator’s role is to help the parties identify areas where they can reach agreement. YOU KNOW MORE ABOUT YOUR PROPERTY AND CHILDREN THAN THE JUDGE.

Mediation lets you and your spouse make agreed decisions.
