WHY DID WE CREATE MEDIATION PATH ?
Because we were not content with what currently exists to solve family disputes amicably, we decided to create our own mediation process and with it our own mediation center. Before creating MPSV, we studied and utilized many types of dispute resolution protocols.
MPSV was established after we put together a new collaborative ultimate level problem solving model derived from our past knowledge and experience. Since we have used this new approach our success rate has significantly increased.
Conflicts in families arise in many situations. The most common causes of conflict are: Deciding what level of care an elder will receive and who will be responsible for their finances - When a deceased parent's will or trust is not clear about how property is to be distributed - When an estate is not divided equally among the children and changes to the estate planning documents were made after the parent was diagnosed with dementia or days before death -When the trustee administering the trust has taken action that other beneficiaries find questionable.
In all cases, the dispute derives from one common denominator : the lack of communication between parties leading to misunderstanding and resentment.
In our model, we work with the parties to identify their interests and needs. We collaborate with them to fully develop not only their expressed position but also their underlying concerns. We ask that each party fully listen and understand the position and underlying concerns of the other party. From this understanding we guide the parties to develop a joint mission statement of their objectives.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT ?
We did not reinvent the wheel but we bring to our clients an innovative way to conduct the discussion during the mediation process. We use both traditional and innovative methodologies and systems to pave the way to our clients’ success.
Family matters are fueled by emotions. Mediation deals with both facts and emotions. Mediation is a voluntary process that all parties agree to participate in with the goal of reaching a satisfactory resolution of the dispute. In court the judge makes the decision for you. In a court proceeding there is a winner and a loser. Our mediation process allows the parties to design their own resolution to their dispute resulting in a solution that can benefit everyone.
We choose to integrate this cutting-edge methodology in our mediation process for one simple reason: this technique when applied to family disputes helps the parties ideate, communicate, participate, and collaborate to focus on creating a positive outcome for all. The family members stop blaming and start designing a future that will work for everyone involved.
