More and more, family law disputes do not go to court at all. Instead, many families choose the more efficient and cost-effective route of mediation. In fact, mediation is actually required in many counties. The Center offers discreet, confidential mediation for central Indiana families.

Mediation is an ADR (alternative dispute resolution) method in which the parties amicably negotiate through a third-party neutral (mediator). The mediation is strictly confidential, and the parties have the option of going forward to litigation if a settlement agreement is not reached via mediation. Mediation almost always saves time and is most often much less costly than going to trial.
