Mediation Services

Divorce disputes can be contentious and costly, but there are more ways to resolve them than traditional litigation. Mediation is an effective alternative dispute resolution option that many people are using to resolve disputes over divorce, child custody, property division and other family law matters.

At Singleton, Burroughs, Young & Sligh, P.A., we represent clients in mediation, and our senior attorney, Joseph O. Burroughs also serves as a third-party neutral mediator in family court, as well as James T. Young serving as such in probate court matters. Whether you are engaged in mediation and need a skilled attorney to protect your rights or are seeking a qualified third-party neutral for mediation services, we can help.

The Advantages Of Mediation

Mediation offers a number of advantages over traditional litigation. It often:

  • Is far less costly
  • Creates less contention and acrimony
  • Puts more control in the hands of the divorcing parties
  • Takes far less time

In mediation, decisions over your personal legal matters rest in your hands, not in the hands of a judge who does not know you. When both parties are willing to work to come to agreement, mediation can be very effective. Of course, that is not always possible as sometimes one party may refuse to be reasonable or to cooperate. Our law firm is prepared for any scenario. If the mediation process breaks down, we are always prepared for aggressive litigation.
