Find a Skilled and Caring "Family Conflict Facilitator"

A term that some people use for mediator is "family conflict facilitator" or "family conflict mediator".  This terminology reflects the reality that litigation or legal disputes  can go beyond even the commonly-arising issues of separation, parenting time (see the article on Family mediation for information on why the term "child custody" has been replaced in the law by the term "parenting time"), property division, and support payments. 

Family conflicts include any matters that arise between family members, and include disputes over estates, family business ownership, or any other issues arising when family members have business or property dealings.  Many issues between family members can end up in court if family members aren't able to get timely and skilled facilitation to allow them to get to a timely and less costly agreement. Individuals who have a family conflict with the potential to end up in costly litigation can take an alternate approach through mediation. This process is an effective way to get an agreement that  allows parties in conflict to forgo a trial or other legal proceedings.
