Divorce mediation is a cooperative and voluntary process for people to reach resolution of their divorce case outside of court.
In Part I of this blog series, we discussed several benefits of divorce mediation, which include putting your children first, a quicker divorce process, a more affordable and cost-effective method of divorce, and retaining control of your divorce case.
For couples interested in divorce mediation, there are additional benefits of this process:
- While no divorce is easy, the divorce mediation process generates much less conflict than contested litigation. The divorce attorney-mediator is specially trained to minimize conflict between spouses during the process. Instead, divorce mediation focuses on maintaining a respectful and atmosphere to allow couples to divorce with dignity. This also helps spouses transition to co-parents post-divorce.
Your Privacy is Protected
- Litigation discloses details on the public record regarding your finances, incomes, and details of your personal lives. In contract, in divorce-mediation, very few documents are publicly filed. Additionally, mediated agreements are drafted in such a way to protect your privacy. Finally, the mediation process is entirely confidential.
Creative, Solution-Oriented Problem Solving
- In divorce mediation, your attorney-mediator will help you think outside of the box to reach a negotiated agreement. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all divorce decree and divorce mediation will help you to resolve the issues in your case with the specific facts of your case in mind.
Less Future Disputes
- In most instances, parties are more satisfied with the outcome of a mediated divorce agreement vs. a litigated court order. This helps reduce future conflicts and potential future court actions from being filed, as parties are more likely to be able to communicate and resolve future issues.
