Mediation in Kentucky Family Law


Mediation can be an effective alternative to litigation. A voluntary process, mediation is also confidential and informal. A mediator is trained to keep communication lines open between parties when they cannot come to an agreement; he or she does not force either party to settle the dispute.

In certain counties, and particularly when custody and parenting disagreements have arisen, mediation is required before a divorce case is heard in court.

Because mediation keeps the two parties at the table, most cases settle prior to a trial. Judges find value in a divorcing couple compromising and agreeing on issues with which they themselves are intimately familiar. Courts have also found that settlements reached through mediation last longer before a review by the courts is necessary
