Top Ten Divorce Mediation Questions Answered
Divorce mediation is fast becoming a popular approach to amicably end a marriage. It eliminates the cost and formalities of litigation and allows couples to reasonably decide, for themselves, how to fairly and equitably part ways. Although mediation is still a relatively new alternative to divorce, the increase in the divorce rate has sent many people searching, blindly, for answers on how it all works.
I am frequently asked many of the same questions regarding divorce mediation, so it seems as though posting my answers may help inform and educate many of you who might still be wondering whether or not it is for you. So, without further ado…
1.) Why should I consider mediation?
Well, why shouldn’t you? Mediation is a cost-effective, client-centered, confidential and amicable option to divorce. In mediated agreements, parties negotiate their own agreements, the time frame is flexible and it encourages mature relationships between parents. Mediating couples are more satisfied and comfortable with the process and results, spend less time and money and are less likely to dispute after the divorce.
