Divorce is tough in many ways: psychologically, emotionally, and financially. Mediation doesn’t take away the pain from divorce, but it offers you a non-threatening process that, at the very least, doesn’t make the situation worse. This cannot be said of litigation.
Through the cooperative, problem-solving approach offered by divorce mediation, you are able to air differences, consider options and resolve issues in a productive manner.
It minimizes the length of time of the divorce, allowing you to move on with your life.
It costs significantly less than litigation, and allows you to keep more of your assets for your and your family’s future needs.
It minimizes stress, keeping you away from the harmful effects of the adversarial court system.
It protects children, keeping them away from the emotional mayhem resulting from litigation.
It encourages brainstorming, helping to pave the road to a satisfactory resolution.
It gives you ownership of your future, keeping control of decisions in your hands rather than the court’s.
