Advantages of Mediation

 

Mediation has many advantages over a "traditional" litigated divorce, allowing the divorcing couple to resolve their issues in a fair, dignified and cost-effective manner.

 

  • 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 decisions

 

  • Mediation allows both parties to actively participate in the divorce process

 

  • Mediation emphasizes direct communication between the couple

 

  • 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

 

  • Mediation is not only for couples who get along!  While You might certainly disagree on various issues, a  trained, experienced mediator will help guide you through the "rough patches" to help you focus on common goals

 

  • Mediation is confidential. Unlike a  "traditional"  divorce, where parties are often discussing (or arguing) in open court, in mediation you're discussing your personal issues in a private setting

 

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

 

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

 

  • Mediation is entirely voluntary
