The benefits of mediation

When a marriage falls apart, sometimes people are reluctant to seek out divorce because of the lengthy battle they assume will be the result.

Fortunately, for those not eager to enter a lengthy contested divorce, other options exist. Mediation is one such option, which has some unique upsides. Here are a few benefits to mediation:

Mediation is discreet

Standard divorces take place in court, which means that most of the details will be discussed openly in front of a judge, a court reporter and anyone who feels like being in the courtroom. Furthermore, court proceedings are usually a matter of public record.

With mediation, it’s just you, your attorneys and a licensed mediator. This gives you a measure of privacy that standard divorces simply cannot match.

A faster process

Instead of coordinating availability between a judge, two lawyers and the courtroom itself, you only need to sync your calendar with your partner and their attorney. This helps you reach closure much quicker and speeds the entire process up considerably.

There’s a set date for resolution, and it doesn’t have to be months out from when you start the process.

Co-operative

Divorce doesn’t have to be a battle. Many times, spouses won’t have a desire to fight with their partner and instead simply want an amicable resolution. Instead of pitting you against your ex-partner, mediation requires you to work with them to reach a satisfying compromise.

Of course, every situation is different, and this style may not be feasible for some, but many find the collaborative approach to be easier on themselves and any children involved.

Determining the best fit for you

Every divorce is different, and it’s important to understand which would be the best fit for your situation. If you are considering a separation and are unsure of how to proceed, a knowledgeable family law attorney can be a great resource.
