Advantages of Mediation

 

Mediation has many advantages over a "traditional" litgated divorce:

Mediation is much less expensive than a traditional divorce. You're spending less time paying professionals, helping to preserve precious financial resources where they belong - with the parties and their children 

The couple has control over the process, and control over the decisions that affect your lives and the lives of your children

With the help of the mediator, the couple is able to make their own fully informed decisons

Mediation emphasizes direct communication between the couple

It's not only for couples who agree!  You might certainly disagree during the process; however, a  trained, experienced mediator will help guide you through the "rough patches" to help you focus on common goals

Mediation is informal and confidential. Unlike a  "traditional"  divorce, you're not discussing your private issues in a public setting

It allows both parties to actively participate in the process

Mediation does not focus on the past.  It's oriented to  the present, and the future

There is no undue time pressure

As in a "traditional" divorce, mediation requires both parties to fully disclose all relevant information

Mediation helps the parties reach a fair agreement on all issues regarding finances, assets, and parenting arrangements

Mediation is entirely voluntary.  Anyone can leave mediation at any time, without sacrificing any of their rights
