Benefits of Divorce Mediation

There are many paths to divorce. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Learning about your options will help you make a good informed decision for you and your family.

As for divorce mediation, many clients find that the advantages include:

Developing an agreement that works for both of you. Divorce mediation empowers you to make your own decisions about what is in the best interest of your children; your finances; and your futures.

Ensuring privacy because mediation is a confidential process. The mediator will not be allowed to testify on behalf of you or your spouse. This allows you to speak openly without fear of something being used against you.

Giving you complete control over the decision-making process. One of the core principles of mediation is self-determination. This means that all decisions are ultimately yours to make, not an attorney and not a judge.

Helping save time and money because divorce mediation allows you to pay for one professional, rather than hiring two separate attorneys, each of whom probably charge higher rates than a mediator. The divorce process also moves more quickly than litigation because mediation provides a process that is designed to help you come to resolution rather than contest every issue through an attorney.

Enhancing child well-being because mediation helps improve communication between the divorcing parents, and results in better child-centered decisions.

Most mediators offer a free consultation. Contact one today if you want to learn more about how mediation can help you divorce.
