Family Law Mediation Attorneys in Salt Lake County

The Amicable Way to Resolve Family Law Disputes

Family law disputes can be expensive, time-consuming, and stressful when taken to court. Handling these issues privately through negotiation or mediation can be more cost-effective and less adversarial. Mediation reduces duress, anxiety, and uncertainty over how the matter will be resolved and puts control in your hands rather than the hands of a judge.

At Eric M. Swinyard & Associates, PLLC, we are dedicated and experienced negotiators who have helped countless clients resolve their family matters. If you are seeking mediation, you can turn to our firm for trusted and professional assistance. From our office in South Jordan, our Salt Lake County family law mediation lawyers can provide the skills and creative thinking needed to help you work toward an acceptable agreement with the other party.

Call (801) 515-4133 or contact us online for an initial consultation.

Understanding Mediation in Family Law Cases

In a family law case – such as divorce – the parties must agree on disputed issues if they wish to avoid protracted litigation. Utah law requires divorcing couples to try to resolve matters through mediation before resorting to litigation.

Mediation is completed outside of court with the help of an impartial, third-party mediator. It is the mediator’s job to help the parties meaningfully discuss and resolve the matter. In mediation, the mediator will not tell you how you should resolve your issues but will work with you until you have found a solution. This can be done with both parties and their attorneys in the mediation room or by the mediator visiting them in separate rooms. Successfully resolving your issues through mediation generally requires that you are willing to communicate constructively, are open to compromise, and know your legal rights.

Mediation can be beneficial and preferred over litigation because:

  • It is done in a safe and private environment as opposed to the public forum of a court
  • It is more affordable
  • It is faster and you are not dependent on court schedules or delays
  • You remain in control of the decisions regarding very personal issues with long-term effects
