What Is Divorce Mediation?

7 Reasons To Choose Divorce Mediation

  • 1) MORE AFFORDABLE – It generally costs significantly less than litigation

  • 2) CO-OPERATIVE – more gets done when spouses are prepared to listen to each other during mediation rather than argue

  • 3) GOOD FOR CHILDREN – the private nature of mediation protects children from much of the emotion and revelation that can be part and parcel of open court divorce proceedings.

  • 4) MORE CONTROL – divorce mediation helps you shape the nature of your separation, unlike litigation, when it’s often a judge who will decide you and your family’s fate.

  • 5) GOOD FOR SPOUSES – mediation keeps the lines of communication open between separating spouses, which bodes well for their future relationship, especially important if there are children involved.
