Exploring Mediation in Netflix's Tiger King

My article on how mediation could've helped Joe and Carole in Netflix's Tiger King 🐅 was published this afternoon! Thank you mediate.com!

Netflix's ubiquitous documentary, Tiger King, is a real-life lesson in the value of mediation over litigation. Whether you're Joe Exotic battling with Carole Baskin, an employee frustrated with a co-worker, or a spouse leaving a marriage, mediation can work efficiently while preserving your sanity,....

It's National Memo Day! Did you know that mediators draft several different types of memorandums? We translate your wishes and draft settlement agreements, parenting plans, Memorandums of Understanding related to child custody, child support, visitation, Memorandums of Agreement between employees or neighbors, and much, much more. Many of these memos are used in court proceedings and can be bound by law.

Thank you so much for featuring Atlantic Mediation this month! I enjoyed the conversation!

I sat down with Erin Fisher from Atlantic Mediation to discuss some very important topic, such as.....
How she can help you with a divorce or custody issues, conflicts in your workplace or neighborhood, or work with your child and classmates in their school.
Mediation’s primary goal is to reduce conflict and help people move forward in peace.

What is mediation?
How is a mediator different than an attorney?
What happens when you mediate?
Why would I want to hire a mediator even if I have an attorney?
Are you able to mediate during COVID-19?
Where do you meditate in Virginia?
Why did you want to be a mediator?
I've been to relationship counseling and we're staying together, but some of the same fights keep coming up. Can you help us settle our conflict once and for all?
Do you work with custody issues?

In the UK, landlords use a platform called "flatfair" which allows its tenants to rent deposit-free. In this unprecedented time, the flatfair developers have now expanded this tool to allow for online mediation.

Whether it’s cleaning, repairs, rent, or gardening, flatfair ensures every charge is well-documented, easy to negotiate, and quick to resolve — so landlords can focus on getting the next tenants in. I love this idea - do you know of a similar platform here in the United States? https://bit.ly/35TYEyf

Did you know that YOU are your child's hero? Did you also know that keeping them out of interpersonal conflict with their parent is an act of love and protection? If you need help with a parenting plan and custody issues, let us facilitate the discussions so that your child doesn't have to mediate for you.

In family mediation, we promote a workable way to live apart, reach an understanding, and ultimately a settlement. Mediator Erin Fisher facilitates discussions between you and your ex to work out an agreement on issues such as: parenting plans, custody, child support, visitation, and more. The emotions surrounding a divorce are rarely factored into settlement meetings between two opposing attorneys -- and this can create a highly distrustful scenario since both exes may be fearful of being hurt again.

Mediation provides a neutral, caring, and respectful method to resolve post-separation details (pets, holidays, vacations, etc.) at a lower cost. Because the settlement that the parties reach is designed by the parties themselves, it is more likely to be carried out without the need for external enforcement or further litigation.

If you and your partner are angry with each other, that's ok. Keep talking and work through it. You're closer to making a deal that satisfies your interests better than having no deal at all. Oh, and that phrase "don't go to bed angry"? That's complete nonsense. Conflict resolution doesn't have a timeframe and it can't be rushed. Take the time to cool down and resume talking tomorrow after you've rested. Your situation may look different in the morning light. 🌞https://bit.ly/3dTahJB

It is #WisdomWednesday and our topic today is *reframing.* Reframing is a technique mediators use to restate or paraphrase a comment into something more neutral and positive. For example, instead of focusing on a position ("He has to pay me ten grand"), a mediator will reframe the statement to focus on the issue instead ("you want to be compensated for your efforts").

Everyone understands problems differently and no one wants to feel attacked. Do you think this technique would work for you? Leave a comment below or DM with your opinion!

Did you know that April 14 of each year is National Ex-Spouse Day? It comes around each year to remind those who've dissolved a marriage to forgive their former spouse and move beyond any anger or bitterness that may remain, however I know this can be very difficult to do with unresolved conflict.

One of the best international mediators of all time (and one of my personal heroes) is former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. I had the privilege of supporting the State Department under her tenure. She had a keen ability to mediate difficult conversations and achieve agreements under enormous pressure -- while maintaining a great sense of humor and flair for accessorizing! She's my pick for #WCW. Erin Fisher

Why Choose Mediation?

YOU DECIDE WHAT "RIGHT" LOOKS LIKE

We’ve all had to deal with interpersonal conflict at some point in our life: a bad break-up, a divorce, a workplace dispute, or a conflict with a roommate, neighbor, or classmate. It was a really tough time, wasn’t it? Or perhaps you are experiencing it now and you just want the situation to end and/or improve. It is difficult to focus on anything else and perhaps you’re feeling stressed out, anxious, trapped, and stuck. Ugh. I’ve been there.

This is when a mediator can help, especially if anger is the primary emotion for you or your ex-husband/friend/co-worker, etc. Why? Well my friends, anger is a strange beast. It can trick you into thinking that your best bet is to sue and experience your own “Law & Order” moment where you get to tell the judge how terribly you’ve been treated. However, the reality is that it never works out that way in real life, especially if you have children. Litigation is lengthy, expensive, bitter, and public. You have little control over the outcome because a settlement is imposed upon you by a judge or an arbitrator. You don’t get a choice in the matter. If you don’t like how it all turns out in court, there is very little (and sometimes nothing) you can do. This is why mediation is a much better alternative than litigation - you get to decide what right looks like. Does a judge or attorneys know what what’s best for you (and your child(ren))? Nope. They didn’t know best for me either. I chose mediation for my own divorce/custody issues years ago and I have never regretted it. In fact, I became such an advocate for #mediationoverlitigation that I became a mediator myself to help other families and individuals resolve their conflicts and move forward in peace -- while maintaining control of the outcome.

Mediation is a highly-personalized, private, caring -- oh, and it costs significantly less than going to court. You get to negotiate your own agreement with the help of a trained, highly-skilled mediator who is bound by a State Code of Ethics (Virginia, in my case). As a mediator, I act as a facilitator - not an advocate, judge, or therapist. I am required to maintain complete neutrality and use my skills to help you solve your own problems. I assist you in identifying the issues, explore alternatives, and help you reach voluntary agreements confidentially. I also draft the settlement agreements, custody and property settlement agreements, and memorandums of understanding for signature that may become legally binding.

By the way, perhaps you’re thinking that it is too late because you’re already litigating. Guess what? It’s never too late to hire a mediator. In fact, most of the individuals that I work with are feeling emotionally and financially drained and need the process to speed up or become “unstuck” without going back and forth between your attorney and the opposing counsel. I work with individuals (and their counsel as needed) at every phase of litigation. I also provide pre-litigation consultations. Bonus: the fees are typically shared equally among the parties.

Peace is possible. Contact us today or book a consultation online here: http://bit.ly/2VEDdhA
