What are the advantages of divorce mediation?
Mediation will usually save both parties thousands of dollars in legal fees. Mediating a divorce, custody, or other family law issue is generally far less costly than using the adversarial system with a divorce lawyer.
Mediation is an expeditious way of handling a divorce, custody dispute or support issue without the inherent complications, delays and expenses. Mediating a family law matter is generally much faster than taking a case through pre-trial and trial. The number of sessions required for a successful mediation depends on the number and complexity of the issues.
In mediation, the parties retain control over the final result. In litigation, by contrast, the parties relinquish control to the lawyers and the judge.
The mediation process is confidential. A successful mediation reduces the need for the parties to file adversarial pleadings or make allegations against each other in open court.
Many people find mediation a much more dignified approach to resolving conflict because both parties have made a commitment to try to resolve their dispute.
Good for Kids
Divorce mediation preserves fragile relationships. A long and drawn-out custody battle can negatively impact kids. Children can benefit when parents resolve their differences in a cooperative manner in mediation. Mediation prevents further deterioration of the relationship between parents. Parents who litigate usually find it very difficult, if not impossible, to communicate with one another after the litigation.
Mediation sessions are set on the parties’ schedules, not the court’s busy calendar.
Mediation provides a safe and respectful forum for the parties in which to reduce conflict and resolve disputes.
