What do the parties need to do before mediation?
Both parties will fill out Mediation Statement forms, found on our Intake Form page, which Melissa will review in advance of the agreed-upon videoconference. This helps streamline the process, saving time and money.
We came to an agreement, now what?
Whether an agreement is reached in part or in full, Melissa will create a Mediated Settlement Agreement, which all will electronically sign and will be filed with the Court. This document has the full force and effect of a contract under the laws of the State of Texas and is binding on the parties.
What happens during the consultation?
We will discuss what issues need resolution to estimate the amount of time necessary for mediation and thus, an estimate of fees. You will need to provide the contact information for the other party and we will have the same conversation with them. If both sides agree to mediate with Allgood Mediation, then we will set a time to videoconference and get to work on a resolution.
What happens at mediation?
Melissa is a neutral, third-party working with both sides to find solutions. Melissa and the parties will meet via videoconference, with each side having the uninterrupted opportunity to present their positions. Once the issues are identified than everyone will get to work, collaborating to find workable solutions, issue by issue.
