Mediation and Litigation

One way to resolve family law disputes is in mediation. Marvel Law Group believes that peaceful resolution of home-based conflict through counseling and mediation often leads to more fulfilling and holistic outcomes at faster and more affordable rates. There are many other benefits associated with mediation that you can learn more about on our Mediation page, but a study has shown that parties involved in mediation are more likely to comply with the agreement because each party pro-actively voiced their concerns and negotiated the terms of the outcome. The study also demonstrated a high degree of correlation between mediated resolutions and non-custodial parent involvement in child-rearing. Marvel Law Group prioritizes the family’s best interests above all — which has sometimes meant going so far as to recommend the services of church counseling and therapists to defuse a brewing crisis.

However, if negotiation is unsuccessful or not the safest option for you, Karen Marvel can also litigate your case. Adversarial courtroom proceedings allow a judge to settle the conflict when the litigants themselves cannot find middle ground. The court sets the timeline for appearances and makes the final determination as to the outcome of a divorce. In this setting, Marvel Law Group can communicate the facts effectively to compel the judge to rule in your favor. As a family lawyer with a hard-earned reputation in the legal community, Karen Marvel’s expansive trial skills can prove advantageous to your case in court.
