What are the main advantages of mediation?

  • less time consuming & stressful
  • more affordable than lengthy litigation
  • quicker resolution of important issues
  • staying in control of the outcome

Mediation allows the parties involved to have productive conversations, working together with a neutral third-party – The Mediator – to find solutions that benefit both parties. Mediation reduces conflict, emotional burden, anxiety and fear which often increases with lengthy court litigation.

Who makes a good mediator?

The advantage of choosing a mediator with family law experience is that the mediator can better explain options, give examples, and paint a clear picture of what the outcome of the disagreements could be if the parties were to go to court. The mediator can not give legal advice to either party but the experience of the mediator facilitating the mediation can make all the difference in what type of solutions may be reached.

Divorce Mediation

Divorce is often an emotionally difficult process. Mediation can ease the tension, open a path for constructive communication, lesson the financial burden, and make it easier to move forward than engaging in an emotionally draining and expensive court battle.

Divorce can be especially traumatic for children. With mediation, children can see that their parents are trying to work together despite their disagreements. Parents experience an environment where their voices are heard, legal implications of decisions are answered and understood, and often common ground can be found even in the most challenging of situations.

But, if at any time during mediation one of the parties feels that they are not satisfied with the process or possible outcome, mediation can be stopped and each party can retain an attorney, take their case to court and let a judge decide. By trying the process of mediation, you are not giving up your right to go to court.
