Alternative Dispute Resolution in Family Law

Resolving the legal aspects of family situations does not have to be a painful process.  Two alternatives to the traditional practice of seeking a court-dictated resolution are mediation and the collaborative process.  Mediation employs a neutral third party to assist in settlement negotiations.  In the collaborative process, each party selects his/her own attorney and there are shared financial and mental health experts working together towards a non-adversarial settlement.   For more information on mediation and the collaborative process, please click on the links below from the 13th Judicial Circuit of Hillsborough County and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.   All of the attorneys at Sessums Black, PA have experience using mediation to reach amicable resolutions.   Caroline Black completed advanced training in alternative dispute resolution and are members of the local and national chapters of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the Collaborative Divorce Lawyers of Tampa Bay.
