“Negotiation is what mediation is about.”

Mediation provides a way to resolve conflict outside of the courtroom. In 1995, Mediation was coded into Arkansas Law and is classified as Alternative Dispute Resolution. Mediation can be used to resolve any conflict, and is frequently used in disagreements of domestic relations, such as divorce and child custody arrangements.

CANOVA LAW & MEDIATION assists both parties in making informed decisions. The resolution of the mediation, called a Memorandum of Understanding, will spell out the agreement and be attached to a court order to be prepared by you or your attorney. MEDIATORS cannot act as a lawyer or provide legal representation to either party. But we can help you make educated, thorough, and solid decisions.
