Mediation And Divorce

Negotiating over a conference room table or heading to the courthouse to argue before a judge are two ways to reach an agreement on your divorce — but you could have other options. Options that involve less stress, time and costs for you and your loved ones.

Divorce Versus Mediation

While most divorces settle out of court, negotiations are based on the possibility of trial. Just like any court case, a divorce trial is a confrontational process where the spouses each make a case against the other and the judge makes the final decisions.

Mediation is different. It is a collaborative process in which a neutral third party, known as the "mediator," guides the spouses through negotiations of important matters like marital property. Often, the mediator is a lawyer with extensive experience in family law. In the end, each spouse generally feels ownership of the settlement and is satisfied with the results. You can also save a substantial amount in legal fees
