Figuring out if divorce mediation is for you

| |

An increasingly popular way divorcing couples handle their matters is through alternative dispute resolution (ADR). In divorce mediation, a neutral mediator helps you and your ex-spouse settle your differences outside of the courtroom.

The mediator will help you communicate effectively with your ex in deciding the terms of your divorce. Consider these factors before deciding if mediation is the right choice for your divorce:

You can still work with your spouse

If you and your ex-spouse still can work together amicably and compromise, then you can make mediation work. Divorce mediation is an avenue in which you come to solutions by resolving your differences through the help of a third-party.

Additionally, if you have a child with your ex, working through mediation is a great indicator of future successful co-parenting.

You want your divorce to stay private

In traditional divorce litigation, your case will eventually become public record. In contrast, all conversations and terms discussed in mediation stay private between you, the mediator and your ex. Should you end up back in court, no mediation records will appear on the public record.

You prefer to set the terms yourself

If you want to have more control over the terms of your divorce, mediation is a great route to go. Under the guidance of a mediator, you have the ability to reach agreements and tailor the outcomes directed at your specific needs rather than having a judge determine the divorce terms.

Overall, through mediation you and your ex can cooperate to solve your problems outside of court.
