Minneapolis Court Ordered Family Mediation
There Is A Better Way
Many families who are going through a divorce, facing custody and parenting time issues or seeking a modification to an existing court order are mandated to attend mediation.
At LeBlanc Law & Mediation, a Minneapolis, Minnesota, family mediation firm, we understand that many court ordered mediation participants are skeptical about the process. Often, they attend court mandated mediation sessions with little hope of reaching a resolution.
In reality, many of those families are able to reach an agreement during mediation, and they do so without handing over control to a judge. Instead, they retain the power to build agreements that fit their needs and the needs of their families.
Court Ordered Mediation – You Might Be Surprised
Mediation is a voluntary process. The court can order you to attend, but they can’t order you to reach an agreement. They also won’t get a report back from our mediators about what was discussed. Mediation is confidential, which gives parties the space to have an honest conversation about what would work for them. All that our mediators will report to the court is that you did or did not attend, and you did or did not reach an agreement.
Our Rule 114 qualified mediators are neutral guides, who help parties get past the points where fights normally erupt, keeping them on track and focused. We ask hard questions of both parties, uncovering the issues that mean the most to each so that they can build agreements that work for both of them.
