Benefits of Mediation in Divorce

Couple during mediationWhen a relationship ends through divorce, there are a variety of matters that must be dealt with. Some issues that the couple will need to make decisions on include spousal support, child custody, child support, and property division.

Traditionally, divorces have been settled in court. However, mediation has become a preferable alternative to litigation. Mediation is the process where a neutral third party assists disputing parties work out a resolution to their conflict.

There are several benefits of the mediation process, including:

  • The disputes are handled in a confidential and comfortable environment.
  • The process is more efficient and cost-effective than litigation.
  • The parties maintain control over the decisions about their future.
  • It allows the couple to formulate creative and mutually beneficial solutions.
  • It fosters the preservation of dignity, self-worth, and ongoing relationships.

If the parties can agree on all the terms and conditions, the court will approve the agreement and the agreement will become legally binding. On the other hand, if the individuals cannot reach an agreement on one or more issues, the case will need to be brought before a judge to decide for them.

How Long Does Divorce Mediation Take?

The length of your mediation will depend on how complex your case is and how much you and your spouse are willing to compromise. The average case will generally require 3-4 two-hours sessions, while a more complex case can take months. Even then, mediation is still generally much faster than litigation.
