Why do people choose divorce mediation?

Divorce mediation is a prevalent method of avoiding litigation to end a marriage. People are realizing the damning effects of going to court. Divorce is not easy or pleasant, but through mediation, it is something that can be tackled with reduce effects on you and your family. No one hopes for a drawn-out emotional battle.

There are benefits to mediation that are quite stark in contrast to litigation. For one, and probably the most notable factor is the time and money saved. Mediation is a cheaper and quicker alternative. When people engage in divorce mediation, they can resolve the matter within a few sessions with the mediator. Instead of spending the money on court fees, two attorneys, and the time spent on discovery and other time-consuming facets of divorce litigation, a couple can hire one professional to guide them towards a separation agreement to be later used to divorce. Mediation is also used because of the control the parties have over the outcome. When a court decides on the matter, it is mostly out of the couple’s hands. When a couple can decide issues for themselves, they are more able to bear the results. Mediation’s benefits don’t stop there. When children are involved, parents who engage in divorce mediation are more likely to come out the other side with a newly forged relationship based on cooperation and mutual respect that translates well to parenting separately. In addition to that, parents are modeling excellent conflict resolution methods, teaching their children while mitigating the emotional effects on them.
