Most family proceedings require mediation before a court will make a decision. Over the last few years, Liz has been expanding her mediation practice to meet the needs of these clients. They are often pleasantly surprised that resolution was reached, and that a court hearing was averted. Successful mediation not only keeps control of the outcome with the parties, but it may serve as a demonstration that the parties can communicate and resolve issues on their own.
Liz can either serve as a family law attorney or mediator but she cannot do both on the same case.
Now offering Elder and Adult Family Mediation. Liz Schading and Bill Huefner are teaming up to bring you their combined expertise in family mediation and estate planning/tax. Elder and Adult Family Mediation services can help families through parental transitions or other complex family issues. These mediation services aim for long-term family harmony, without primary legal focus, in multi-party, multi-generational, and multi-issue circumstances, such as:
- Financial decisions
- Residence assistance
- Medical decisions
- Estate planning considerations (with assistance from attorney Bill Huefner)
- Selling or allocating the family homestead or other valuable assets
- Consideration of sentimental and emotional attachment
The process uses facilitated discussions to resolve emotional issues through effective communication. Mediation is a confidential process.
