Three reasons to consider mediation

Litigated divorce can be stressful, expensive and time consuming. Courtroom battles often intensify the emotional and financial stakes of the end of a relationship. Fortunately, there are other options.

Mediation is an alternative divorce process that offers several benefits.

1. Cost-effective

According to the American Bar Association, mediation is often 40 percent to 60 percent less expensive than litigation.

In mediation there is only one third party involved, a mediator, rather than multiple attorneys. Mediation also requires spouses to work together; reducing the hours spent resolving problems. These are among the many factors that drive down costs.

2. Less stressful for children

Mediation is often beneficial for your children. The process is typically less combative and argumentative, allowing for a more peaceful home environment during the divorce. This can remove some of the stress on your kids, and make for a smoother transition into a shared custody agreement.

3. Flexibility

Litigation involves multiple parties, including attorneys, judges and financial professionals. With mediation, you get to choose who to involve in the process. Rather than working with several people, the mediator will help facilitate your agreement. Minimizing the people involved and avoiding the courtroom can save you time and allow you to have more control over the important parts of your divorce.

It can be valuable to at least take the time to consider mediation. Even if you and your spouse are dealing with bitterness and anger, you may discover the benefits of mediation motivate you to put aside your differences and work toward an agreement.
