Legal Assistance with Family Mediation in New Hampshire
Mediation is a more informal, civil, less expensive and healthy process for resolving disputes in any field, in any area. Mediation involves parties to a case meeting with a trained mediator who acts as a neutral in the case. The Mediator is impartial, advocating no position and certainly a mediator does not decide who is right or wrong. Mediation involves talking through resolutions to the parties’ dispute(s).
The goal of mediation is to reach an agreement or agreements that all parties have input into and can live with. Tammy Gosling’s personal goal for mediations is for parties to always leave at least as civil and friendly with each other as they come in. In mediation parties make their own decisions rather than leaving the decision to a judge, master or arbitrator. The parties craft the agreement as they agree, not as the court imposes. Parties maintain input to and control of their future and their children’s future in mediation.
Mediation is a private and confidential process. Participants will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement prior to mediating. The mediator has confidentiality with all parties in mediation. A mediator cannot discuss the mediation afterward except to report the status of the case if needed. A mediator cannot put anything in writing except court required reports and any agreements the parties may come to in mediation. Finally, a mediator cannot testify for either party if the mediation breaks down and the parties proceed to court.
