Dreading the thought of talking with your parents or other loved ones about making a will, or moving into assisted care? Avoiding sharing your dream for your legacy because you know someone’s feelings will be hurt? Just plain want to avoid any family “confrontation” at all? Then family mediation might be your solution.
Family mediation involves bringing all of the interested parties together and discussing the issues that each one views as important. It is an environment where each party can express their opinions without interruption. After all viewpoints are expressed, an experienced mediator facilitates constructive conversation that assists everyone involved in arriving at a mutually-beneficial solution.
Mediation can be either voluntary or court-ordered. Either way, we have the experience to guide you through this conflict-resolution process.
Mediation is a tool businesses have used to resolve conflict and issues for decades. Over the last fifteen years it has steadily moved into areas of family law. Oregon courts now require a minimum number of hours for all divorces involving parenting plans and child custody. Kuenzi Law LLC can help you craft your own plan through mediation.
When most people think of legal mediation in terms of either a divorce or a legal dispute. While these circumstances often involve mediation, there are many other family situations that can benefit from mediation services as well. Consider the following circumstances where we can help you settle disagreements in a non-adversarial environment.
Moving a Loved One to Assisted Care
Moving to assisted care isn’t easy for the person moving or for their loved ones. The process is often highly charged due to the deep, emotional involvement that all parties have. Our mediation services offer a neutral way to remove the volatility and discuss the situation in constructive terms.
Estate Plans and Wills
Talking with loved ones about your final wishes and estate plan is never easy. It becomes more difficult when your desires differ from what they want. We can foster constructive conversations that inform family and friends of your final wishes. This can prevent hurt feelings and contested wills later on. There are many other cases where mediation is beneficial.
