Mediation helps people in disagreement hear each other, minimize harm that comes from disagreement, and work towards a mutually agreed outcome. Mediation works well for resolving disputes involving parties that want or need to maintain a relationship.
Iowa law now requires mediation in most divorce proceedings. Mediation can make it easier for parties to divide property and agree on child custody and support. Mediation can also help resolve disputes with neighbors or family members, civil litigation, business or employment disputes, or real estate, probate, or construction disputes. Mediation can be used instead of litigation. It can also be used as a tool to resolve issues during litigation in order to reduce some of the costs and resources associated with going to court.
At Pioneer Law Office, we recognize the value of maintaining relationships while working toward solving a problem. Sometimes court isn’t the answer. For many types of conflict, mediation is an alternative form of dispute resolution that can help you find your way.
