Mediation

Mediation is one form of alternative dispute resolution in which you and your spouse meet with a neutral third party, a Mediator, to attempt to resolve your legal issues. Mediation cannot be forced; you and your spouse must consent to attend Mediation.

There are many advantages to attending mediation including the following:

  • It is typically faster than the Court Process
  • It is usually costs less than going through the Court Process
  • You and your Spouse mutually agree on a Mediator who you are both comfortable with
  • You and your Spouse choose when to meet with your Mediator and
  • You and your Spouse have the option of entering into a closed or open Mediation process

Closed mediation means that any negotiations is confidential. No one can repeat what was said during your mediation, except in rare situations.

Open Mediation means that anyone – you, your partner, and your mediator – can give evidence in court about what occurred during your mediation. All documents can also be shared.

Prior to attending mediation, your Mediator will determine if mediation can be done fairly and safely by meeting alone with both you and your spouse for a pre-mediation interview. If the Mediator determines that Mediation may be beneficial for you and your spouse, they will then schedule your Mediation date.

Mediators are trained to:
a) mediate safely and look for signs of domestic violence
b) not take sides when working with the parties and their different interests
c) help each party see the other’s point of view and
d) assist the parties in coming to an agreement to resolve their issues

Mediation will only work for you and your spouse if you are able to communicate with each other. If either of you refuses to cooperate or discuss your family law matter, it is likely that Mediation is not the right process for your family law matter.

Remember how far you have come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be.

Our Superhero...

Our dad retired a few years ago and joined us at Horra Family Law. Our dad has many roles at Horra Family Law from handling all of our accounting and managing our office. No matter how busy he is, he always makes sure that our fridge is stocked with food, there are fresh donuts on Monday morning, midweek beef patties and that everyone is taken care of! Not only is he our dad, he’s everyone’s dad at the office. We are blessed to work with our dad and have him as a key member of our team!

Happy Father’s Day to our dad. He’s the best dad, grandpa, “office dad” and grandpa to our pets!

Choosing your Family Law Lawyer is a big decision. You must feel comfortable with your lawyer and have a path set out in terms of what the next steps are.

Horra Family Law offers free initial consultations. When you're preparing for your first consultation with Horra Family Law, it helps to have a few key items prepared to ensure you receive the best experience possible. Below are some tips for your initial consultation.

Be honest: Remember that all conversations you have with your lawyer are always confidential. With this in mind, it’s important to share all relevant details pertaining to your case with your lawyer so that they can help you as best they can.

Don’t be afraid to discuss legal fees from the get-go: Lawyer fees can be complex, and solidifying the details of money matters at your first consultation lifts a weight off your shoulders. What to expect in terms of a retainer, and court fees, are costs to inquire about.

Bring copies of relevant documents: Make copies of all relevant documents pertaining to your case and bring them to your consultation. The more information, the better.

Take notes: Write down questions, and have a space ready to record notes on information or contacts your lawyer provides you with during your consultation. Keeping your thoughts organized on paper will also ease the stress you feel.

At Horra Family Law, our hearts stand behind all of the work we do. Notably, our signature family focused approach stems from our combined experience and knowledge as lawyers and as family members.
