Regarding Divorce Mediation

What Does Divorce Mediation Entail?
Mediation provides a more relaxed alternative to arbitration or litigation, steering clear of rigid court protocols and offering greater freedom in scheduling sessions without the confines of packed court schedules.

A mediator acts as an impartial third party committed to promoting open dialogue between partners. By pinpointing areas of agreement and possible compromises, the mediator helps the couple address hurdles and settle disagreements. Mediation occurs in a cooperative setting, allowing partners to voice their thoughts freely. Usually held in a conference room or office, mediation sessions might involve joint meetings with both partners, individual discussions, or a mix of both.

Benefits After Divorce

After divorce, life goes on, and those who choose mediation often discover they’re emotionally better prepared to discuss matters related to children and finances. When parents cooperate, children typically experience less stress. According to the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC), adherence to child support agreements reaches 80 percent after mediation, compared to 40 percent after a litigated divorce.

Opting for mediation can save couples thousands of dollars and drastically expedite the divorce process, often concluding in a quarter of the time it takes through litigation. The savings in time and money ease the transition into their new roles as single parents.
