The divorce process can be long, be stressful, and drain your time and energy, but it is important to realize that it doesn’t have to be. Options are available for couples who can work together to negotiate mutually beneficial agreements before a divorce is finalized. One such option is mediation, in which a neutral third party facilitates discussions and helps both spouses work toward a solution.

The Benefits Of Mediating Your Divorce

Divorcing couples may turn to mediation to resolve divorce-related issues for a variety of reasons, but some key benefits can be seen in every situation. For example, mediation:

  • Saves money: The cost of mediating a divorce could be significantly less than going to trial.
  • Gives parties more control: Couples who mediate their divorce take a hands-on approach to dispute resolution, which gives them more control over the final outcome.
  • Helps to ensure parties adhere to the agreement: Couples who participate in mediation are more likely to abide by their divorce agreement than those who require court intervention.
  • Saves time: California courts are busy, which can result in delays throughout the divorce process. Mediation expedites the process and allows couples to move on to the next stage in their lives.
  • Provides flexibility: Mediation allows flexibility in two ways. First, your mediator might be willing to meet in the evenings or on the weekend to account for your busy schedule. Second, mediation allows the parties to develop creative, personalized solutions to issues that might arise.
  • Protects children: Child custody and child support issues can unleash strong emotions. These emotions can be difficult for a child when he or she is thrust into court proceedings as part of the resolution process.
  • Protects confidentiality: Mediation is a private and confidential process where parties can discuss personal matters away from the public eye. It is important to realize that all court files are public record, while a mediator’s are confidential.
