Resolving Disputes as God Intended—Peacefully, Humbly, and with Love
Helping Believers Reach Better Mutual Outcomes
Because we live in a fallen world, Christians frequently find themselves entangled in interpersonal problems and family law situations. These can include divorces and separations, disputes concerning parental care, dividing assets, disputes at work, their community, and even with their own children. The Bible calls for Christians to resolve these issues without going to court. At Christian Mediation, our Arizona mediation professionals are trained to understand how to solve problems involved in these emotionally complex matters while keeping tender relationships intact.
Why Resolve Interpersonal Conflicts Through Mediation?
There are many reasons to seek resolution through mediation. In addition to honoring God and His desire for us to resolve our disputes peacefully and with respect for one another, mediation has many significant practical benefits as compared to litigation.
By resolving interpersonal conflict through mediation you will:
- Save Time and Money — While mediators can charge as much as courtroom litigators, mediation hearings only last hours or days compared to court cases that can take months or years to resolve. This saves everyone involved a lot of time and money as compared to the civil legal system.
- Reach Better Solutions — Because mediation puts the decision in the hands of the parties involved, it is more likely that the resolution will benefit all parties equally and that the outcome itself will be more satisfactory to all than a verdict handed down by the court.
- Preserve Relationships — Due to the "winner takes all" approach of lawsuits, courtroom proceedings can be contentious. These proceedings can cause irreversible damage to relationships. Mediation, on the other hand, seeks understanding and compromise between disputants, which can preserve or even strengthen relationships on the way to reaching an agreement.
What if Mediation Doesn't Work?
Mediation will not work in all cases. Whether mediation has failed or is not deemed appropriate, Christian Mediation can assist clients with other forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration, where an assigned third-party conciliator makes a decision.
