In Texas, the probate court has the authority to order alternative dispute resolution (ADR) between the parties before the case continues to trial. Although the court can order ADR, it cannot force the parties to agree outside the courtroom. Mediation is the most popular ADR method.
Probate mediation naturally invokes the intricacies of probate law. If you are not represented and do not fully understand probate, you may unfortunately end up with the short end of the settlement.
Understanding the strength of your case and your ability to win in court gives you the leverage needed in mediation if the other party refuses to agree.
