What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a legal process that allows people who are ending their marriage to meet with a specially trained, neutral third-party to discuss and resolve issues related to their divorce. It is generally quicker, cheaper, and less emotionally taxing than a regular divorce. Mediation also gives the couple the power to decide on their resolution rather than leaving that choice in the hands of a judge.
What Are the Benefits of Mediation?
Mediators are more than just an unbiased facilitator—they are trained in conflict resolution, possess a thorough understanding of federal and local divorce laws, and have extensive experience and knowledge concerning the various and complicated issues that come with divorce, such as child custody, visitation, and child support.
The three main benefits of divorce mediation for most couple ending a marriage are:
- Affordability: Mediation doesn’t require you and your spouse to hire your own lawyers and spend money on court proceedings, so the costs associated with mediation are far lower than those of a traditional divorce.
- Confidentiality: Everything that is said and decided upon during mediation is between only you, your spouse, and your mediator. Unlike divorce court, there is no public record created of the proceedings during mediation.
- Efficiency: Since mediation allows you to avoid the courtroom, it tends to move along far more quickly than traditional divorce. As long as you and your spouse are willing to work together, the negotiations should move relatively quickly and painlessly.
Ultimately, mediation is significantly more stress-free than divorce. You and your spouse get to avoid court hearings, discovery, finger-pointing, and the expenses and stresses of a trial. With the help of a skilled and compassionate mediator, even couples with a history of poor communication can succeed in mediation.
