Mediation in my divorce?

On Behalf of | Jul 8, 2024 | Divorce

Divorce is often a challenging and emotional process, and going through the courts does not make it any easier.

The entire process can take a while, and it can be gut-wrenching, especially if you have children.

An alternative to traditional litigation is mediation, which offers numerous benefits that can help the parties get through their divorce faster and more courteously.

While you do not need to be best friends with your soon-to-be former spouse, it is essential to know that mediation is not for everyone. Civility is important, and a qualified third-party mediator is critical to a successful outcome.

Benefits of mediation

Mediation offers many benefits that a traditional divorce does not. For example:

  • Mediation encourages the preservation of relationships
  • Mediation provides more control over the outcome of the case
  • Mediation is more cost-effective than going to court
  • Mediation is confidential, and its contents are not public record
  • Mediation encourages creative solutions

Mediation is a way to solve problems that does not involve the courtroom’s formality but requires a neutral third-party who will help the individuals by facilitating the conversation and ensuring the negotiations stay on track.

This process can help divorcing couples achieve a more positive and constructive resolution.
