Benefits of Mediation
Even for couples anticipating some amount of conflict in their divorce, it is highly recommended they consider the possibility of mediation. Using mediation-instead of the courtroom process-to negotiate and finalize a divorce provides numerous advantages for the couple.
Reasons why couples should consider divorce mediation include:
- It’s cheaper: instead of each spouse hiring their own lawyer, mediation is conducted by one mediator who serves both clients equally. Mediation also allows the couples to avoid court fees.
- It’s less stressful: for couples who choose mediation, it is likely that working together will be less painful and adversarial than a courtroom process. When there is a disagreement or conflict, the mediator is there to help the couple resolve it sensitively and efficiently.
- It’s more flexible: couples who decide on mediation do not have to adhere to court hearings and schedules. Mediation session scheduling is decided by the couple and is conducted at their convenience.
- It’s more likely to be final: when a judge decides on divorce agreement matters, it is based on precedent and black and white information. However, no one knows a marriage like the couple in question and the decisions that they make together during mediation are more likely to be suitable in the long term. That means that mediated divorces are less likely to require modifications in the future-which, in turn, could mean fewer legal fees and less conflict.
These are just some of the many advantages mediation can have for a divorcing couple.
