This is the final post in a series of articles discussing private mediation in Las Vegas, Nevada child custody matters. Private mediation is a potentially beneficial alternative for Las Vegas families dealing with a child custody dispute. One goal of this series has been to provide general information about the private mediation process. Another objective has been to encourage those parents who believe mediation may be right for them to contact an experienced family law attorney to assist with the process.

The following topics have been reviewed throughout this series:
- An overview of the private mediation process in custody matters
- The benefits of private mediation
- What to expect during a private mediation
Parents considering private mediation should have a general understanding of each of these points. First, there are important differences between traditional litigation of a child custody dispute versus private mediation. In many cases, mediation provides an alternative to a lengthy court battle. For those who believe mediation may be an option for their family, it is important to understand how the private mediation process works. Second, custody litigation can be stressful, emotionally draining, expensive, and time consuming. The negative impact on one’s child and family can be overwhelming. Mediation, on the other hand, can be handled quickly, reducing the expense and stress on all parties. Third, mediation may not be right for everyone. It is important to understand what will be expected of the parties during mediation in advance of engaging in that process.
