What Elder/Adult Family Law Matters Can Be Settled with Mediation?

Mediation is designed to deescalate hostilities between parties so that they can find common ground. The ultimate goal of mediation is to achieve a settlement that is agreeable to both parties, meeting their needs and addressing their concerns. Elder cares issues that can be addressed in mediation include:
  • End of life decisions
  • property/asset distribution
  • Inheritance 
  • Issues related to driving and transportation
  • Living arrangements
  • Powers of attorney
  • Guardianship
  • Financial disputes
  • Conflicts regarding a family-owned business
  • Dealing with long-term care
As people age, it becomes essential to develop a care plan. These decisions can be incredibly emotional and challenging for both the person and their family. Mediation helps to promote cooperation between family members, ensuring that everyone’s interests are represented throughout the process.

How a Mediator Can Help in Elder Care

Elder care mediators, also referred to as adult family mediators, can help facilitate communication between family members. They help all involved parties arrive at fair decisions, making compromises where necessary.  Elder care mediators ask the needed questions and help to focus the conversation on the important issues driving the conflict. Mediators are neutral, third-parties that help parties achieve a final agreement. They do not decide the outcome of the case but rather assist parties in dispute to reach a mutual resolution. 

Why Is a Mediator Important in Elder/Adult Family Law Matters?

Mediators are crucial where the parties need to preserve an ongoing relationship. Family dynamics, sibling rivalries, and decades-old resentment can rear their head during elder care disputes, making it difficult to find common ground and potentially causing the issue to spin out of control. When matters cannot be resolved out of court, they can be extraordinarily expensive in terms of time, money, and emotional capital. An elder care mediator helps guide family members toward a cost-effective resolution. It also allows both parties to have a voice in the outcome of the case.
