Could mediation be an option for you?

Like other California residents, you may find yourself embroiled in a dispute with another party. Perhaps you attempted to resolve the situation without involving the courts, but those efforts got you nowhere. Now, you are facing the possibility of filing a lawsuit.

If this is not your first choice as a resolution method, you may want to know that there is another way. Mediation is an alternative method of resolving disputes that has worked well for others in the past. You may also be considering this method but need answers to some questions first.

Not happy with your inheritance? Is it worth contesting?

Having siblings has its good points and bad. If you were fortunate to get along with your brothers and sisters, you may have friendships with them as adults that you cherish above all others. However, if tension or rivalry existed among you growing up, those old resentments may be difficult to overcome.

If you recently lost your parents, you may find those childhood rivalries rearing their ugly heads, especially if your parents didn't divide the estate the way you expected. In fact, you may even suspect that the will your parents signed is not valid.

Mediation may offer benefits for dealing with employment disputes

Business needs are a common aspect of owning and running a company. In many cases, those needs also coincide with keeping employees happy. Unfortunately, problems can arise within a business and its operations that make it difficult for you and your employees to see eye-to-eye. In some cases, the issues may not prove easy to resolve on your own, and as a result, you could face legal action if your employees feel unsatisfied.

Before immediately heading toward litigation to end an employment dispute, you may wish to determine whether an alternative method could prove effective. You may find it worthwhile to explore mediation as a possible option for resolving issues.
