Divorce Mediation

How Divorce Mediation Works

To settle a divorce through mediation, a divorce mediator will meet with the parties to help them come to a divorce settlement agreement. The mediator should be knowledgeable of in divorce law and have the skills necessary to help couples reach an agreement. That way both parties can be assured that their legal rights are being honored and that their individual opinions are being heard. Often, mediation can take place in the divorce mediator’s office and the parties do not have to take the stand against one another or go to court.

Is Divorce Mediation Right for You?

Divorces can be expensive—both financially and emotionally. Some couples can avoid some of the financial and emotional expenses by settling their divorce through mediation rather than litigation.

The Benefits of a Mediator

Divorce mediation can be a good option to consider for couples who are both able to speak up for what they want and need and for couples who can handle the process maturely. For couples who are splitting on relatively amicable terms, especially couples with children who will need to communicate long after the divorce is over, mediation can be a first step to establishing good post divorce communication. While mediation can be valuable for many couples, it is often not a good choice if one spouse has been verbally or physically abused. In those cases, both spouses may need their own legal representation.

A traditional divorce proceeding is going to require both spouses to hire their own divorce lawyers. This takes money from the marital estate and leaves both spouses with less money once the divorce is final. It can also lead to more contention and disagreement than is necessary. Thus, many couples can find a more peaceful and less expensive alternative in divorce mediation.
