Probate and Guardianship mediation is similar to civil mediation, but the emotions are often at an extreme. This session offers help in determining when mediation may be the best option for a family and insights on important considerations, including confidentiality issues, pre-mediation interviews, and selection of a mediator. Guidance is also offered on local court rules; motions; petitions to seek the appointment of a mediator; and the expectations of a mediator from the pre-mediation interview through the signing of a family settlement.
This is the reality we are all facing where in person litigation, mediation, and even client meetings might not be possible or might need to be modified. Technology that can assist you, including online co-parenting communication tools such as Our Family Wizard, will be highlighted.
This course explains the ins and outs of mediation to attorneys and answers the frequently asked questions they may have concerning the mediation process.
