Many people have heard about mediation as an alternative way to resolve legal disputes. Some may not be aware, however, that private mediation may be available to Las Vegas residents engaged in custody cases. The goal of this series is to provide general information about private mediation and distinguish between litigation or other dispute resolution proceedings. Custody battles can be overwhelming, expensive and stressful. Hiring an attorney to provide private mediation services may help you avoid the perils of a traditional custody hearing.

Parents engaged in a child custody dispute should consider private mediation as a potential method for resolving their differences. They should understand these key points while evaluating this option. First, it is important to have a basic understanding of the mediation process. A private mediation session differs from the mediation program administered by Clark County Family Court and from traditional litigation. Second, there are a variety of benefits to resolving a dispute through the private mediation process. Saving time, money, and aggravation are among them. Third, if a family elects to participate in private mediation, both parents should understand what to expect from the process.
