Mediation — Family Law
Resolve Your Legal Dispute Efficiently and Effectively with Mediation in South Carolina
Mediation is a process where a neutral third party helps parties in a legal dispute reach a resolution. It can occur at any point in the litigation process and is mandatory in all 46 counties throughout the state. Mediation allows parties to craft a resolution that mitigates risks and reduces emotional hardship compared to going to trial. It is typically very successful when done correctly and can save parties a great deal of money and stress. The mediator does not force a settlement or make a judgment on the case, but rather helps the parties to reach a compromise.
In South Carolina Family Court actions, parties are required to participate in at least three hours of mediation unless an agreement is reached beforehand. Mediators are often attorneys who have undergone specialized training. Smith Ammons is a law firm that can provide experienced representation and mediation services for Family Court cases, including hosting mediations in person or virtually.
