What’s the point of divorce mediation?

mediation-new.jpg

When you’re going through a divorce, sitting down at a table and trying to negotiate with your spouse may sound like the very last thing you want to do.

Here’s why you should consider divorce mediation anyway:

Mediation can save money.

There are a lot of costs associated with divorce — and you naturally want to minimize them where you can. Typically, litigation costs a lot more than mediation. The amount of time you spend with your attorney or the mediator is going to be far less than what you would have to spend if your case has to go before a judge.

Mediation allows for tailored solutions.

If you take your divorce case to court, you can generally expect the judge to apply rules that don’t take into account any of the unique issues you and your family may have. One great thing about mediation is that it allows for carefully tailored solutions that actually work in real life.

Mediation can help you feel better emotionally.

Part of the high cost of divorce is the emotional toll it takes on the whole family. Litigation forces you to constantly fight for your goals — and gives you less time to process your feelings. Sitting down to negotiate with your spouse can be a cathartic experience that helps you close the door on your past and move forward.

Mediation can establish communication between the parties.

If you need to co-parent with your spouse in the future, mediation can be excellent at helping you establish a new working relationship. Learning to tailor your communication to what’s really important and to work together on joint goals now can set the tone for a cooperative future that will benefit your children.
