Mediation

South Carolina requires virtually all Family Court cases to be mediated.

The Court believes that all parties should attempt to mediate their differences and reach an agreement . The benefit of mediation is that you and your spouse or the opposing party can work together to resolve the case. Each case in Family Court cases has unique circumstances and the traditional ways to resolve a family court case may not be beneficial to you, your spouse, and/or your children. Mediation gives you and your spouse the power to reach an agreement outside the courtroom saving everyone time, money, and the heartache of going through a trial.

In mediation, each party is allowed to explain his or her side of the case and describes how they would like to resolve the process. The mediator works with the parties to find areas in common and offers possible resolution to their differences. Typically the mediator will meet with each party individually. If the issues are agreed upon at the conclusion of the mediation, an agreement is written and all parties will sign the document. This agreement is then submitted to a Family Court Judge for approval.

Melissa Franklin Hill is a certified Family Court Mediator since 2005. In her practice she had successfully mediated numerous disputes between parents and divorcing spouses.
