Texas Family Law:  How is an informal settlement conference different than a mediation?

An informal settlement conference is an informal process where the parties and their attorney’s meet and attempt to settle their disputes at a designated location. Mediation requires the parties and their counsel to appear before a mediator, who is an individual who has an expertise in negotiating disputed issues. The mediator normally will meet with the parties in separate rooms and prepare offers, counter offers until the dispute is resolved or minimized. Most cases that are referred to mediation are resolved. http://www.sossilaw.com
