What to do When Mediation May Not Be the Best Next Step

Situation 2: Retain Counsel to enter Negotiations or Collaborative Law (where applicable)

One should always consult an attorney to be advised of legal standing in all procedures and negotiations. Mediation, as stated above, is an option to be used to move a process forward as quickly as possible using a mediator between the parties.

If this is not a viable option, you may need to use attorneys to move your case forward and may/may not be presented in court before a judge.

If you need to find representation, below you will see information to have a list of qualified attorneys sent to you. We have found this service to provide referrals to extraordinary attorneys and you have the freedom to speak to and choose whomever you are comfortable with. (It takes a lot of pressure off of you to search for an attorney.)

Situation 3: High Conflict/ Difficult Personalities in Divorce

In this situation, you may have an attorney and mediation is not an option, at least not yet, and there is constant contention. Nothing can get ironed out, decisions made keep going out the window and it feels like every meeting is like starting over again. In these situations, you may be dealing with a difficult personality/high conflict style, narcissism, or other issues adding complications.

In addition to retaining an attorney, you may want to invest in some specific training for yourself when dealing with an extremely difficult person. Rebecca Zung, Esq is rated in the top 1% of attorneys in the nation and specializes in Negotiating with Narcissists.

She has put together a special training package to teach these specific negotiation techniques to apply in these situations. It is my most highly recommended training package of this kind.
