Temple Mc Lean A Montana Native with over 25 years of paralegal background in family law and child support issues.  I have been married also for over 20 years with three children (nearly grown)."I want my day in court" is a great desire in the heat of conflict, but I have found that mediation is the only venue that offers true satisfaction.  Facilitative mediation in particular allows a forum for parties to discuss respectfully ALL the issues of the conflict so that everyone is heard and can move forward with resolutions.
