Why Choose Mediation

Mediation offers a less stressful approach to resolving family law disputes, such as child custody. It also provides a more flexible approach to conflict resolution. Instead of leaving everything up to the court, mediation gives you and your former spouse or partner the opportunity to work through these matters together. If you have children, mediation can also help set the foundation for a more cooperative co-parenting relationship.

Many family law matters can be handled through mediation, including:

Facilitative vs. Evaluative Mediation

The two most common forms of mediation are facilitative mediation and evaluative mediation. Your needs will determine what type of mediator you hire. A facilitative mediator works with each spouse’s respective attorney as a go-between, aiding communication between both parties. Under these circumstances, the mediator will not interject their opinion into the case. With evaluative mediation, your mediator will take on a more active role. Instead of merely serving as a go-between, an evaluative mediator will provide you with guidance and advice throughout the process.

Mediators act as a neutral third-party and will not advocate for either party. Their primary focus is to help both spouses work through their issues and resolve it equitably, and with less tension and stress than what most typically experience in courtrooms.

CPS Mediation

Mediation is often used in cases that are handled by Child Protective Services (CPS). CPS cases are particularly stressful and involve more people than a typical divorce or child support mediation. In addition to both parents and their attorneys, CPS mediation cases often involve caseworkers, CPS supervisors, CPS attorneys, and an attorney to represent the children. Bobby Dale Barina, Attorney At Law has the experience necessary to handle your CPS mediation case in Temple and Central Texas.
