Issue No. 13 - Family Law Mediation in Family Violence Cases: Basics & Best Practices

March 2022

Mediation is a dispute resolution process where parties use a neutral third-party to help them reach a voluntary agreement regarding their dispute. Mediation aims to facilitate points of agreement, achieve better outcomes of conflict, and reduce its many “collateral effects” (Feresin et al., 2018). Since mediation is non-adversarial in nature, it is recognized as a beneficial option for parties who want to remain on good terms or who will have to work together in the future, such as parents sharing child custody (Neilson, 2014).
