Mediation Puts The Decision-Making In Your Hands
Mediation is one form of alternative dispute resolution that offers a tool that can allow you to negotiate a settlement that works for your family while protecting your rights. Families in Louisiana have been able to successfully use it to reach workable, long-term agreements.
As the founder of the Law Office of Laura L. Davenport, I am not only an attorney but also a mediator who has received specific training in conflict resolution.
Divorce Is A Difficult Process, But It Doesn’t Need To Be A Battle
You may be hurt and angry at the end of a marriage, but you still want to do what is right for you and your children while protecting your rights. You can accomplish both of these goals through the opportunity to find and apply the creative solutions mediation provides to resolve complex divorce issues. Unlike litigation, the mediation process leaves the decision-making to you, and allows you to make your own reasoned decisions about property division, child custody and visitation issues.
Once you reach an informed agreement, you can each have your lawyer review it. Mediation puts the important choices in your hands. Another added benefit: many studies have shown that couples who negotiate their own agreements are more likely to abide by the terms than in cases decided by a judge.
