WHAT IS PROBATE MEDIATION?
by Lucia Galante Johnson, MS. FHD - Senior Mediator
Disputes between families over wills, trusts, care for minors or those with health concerns can make parties feel they are tied up in knots. Clients feel there are no solutions to this conflict.
Probate Mediation Services provides professional facilitation dialogue. It is a place to have conversations of issues that concern family members.
From the distribution of assets stated in a will to the granting of guardianship for a minor, I am here. I have an excellent track record mediating over 100 cases with a rate of 98% in successful agreements.
Mediation is a confidential, voluntary, and cost saving way to resolve disputes. Most conflict result out of misunderstanding and finding a way to bridge the gap of communication can help. It is a process where the clients can determine their own outcomes and resolutions instead of mandates by the court. All parties must agree to attend mediation in order to allow all parties involved to share their views of th case.
The other benefit to mediation, often parties come to an agreement which may limit the amount of court appearances and possibly lead to the dismissal of the trial. This saves clients time and money.
