Four Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Divorce is a significant and life-altering decision. There are many often painful reasons why individuals decide to divorce, and the emotional toll can be severe. To add to the challenge, the prospect of litigation can be financially taxing on both parties.

Are there any options that can lessen these difficult impacts, at least to some degree?

Fortunately, there are–divorce mediation is one of them. In this post, we will consider what divorce mediation is and the four benefits of choosing this course.

What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation is a method of resolving disputes between two parties seeking to dissolve their marriage. In mediation, the parties will work with an objective third party (the mediator) to devise a mutually agreeable resolution to the issues. This is usually done through negotiation and compromise.

The mediator may assist you in reaching an agreement on matters like property distribution, child custody, and child support. Mediators do not provide legal advice but instead act as facilitators to assist couples in determining what is best for their circumstances.

What Are the Benefits of Divorce Mediation?

In many cases, divorce mediation can help to reduce the stress and expense associated with divorce. While there are other methods of resolving disputes between divorcing spouses, mediation is generally seen as a more satisfactory approach. This is because it enables both parties to work together towards a solution, they feel comfortable with.

Here are four specific advantages of choosing divorce mediation:

  • More control: Mediation allows individuals to have more say over the outcome of their divorce. Mediators do not take sides, so they can help both parties reach a solution that works for everyone.
  • Cost: It can be much less expensive than litigation and other dispute resolution methods. Mediation generally doesn’t require expert witnesses or an acting legal attorney (although you may want to work with one for advice).
  • Confidentiality: Mediation is confidential and private. This means that you can keep the details of your divorce out of public record. This is especially beneficial if children are involved or one of you works in a sensitive field, such as law enforcement.
  • Time Savings: Divorces can take years to finalize through court litigation, but mediation can often be completed within a few months. This means you can get on with your life more quickly than if you were going through the traditional divorce litigation process.
