Divorce Mediation

Balancing the emotional, legal, and logistical issues

Divorce mediation is a process where a neutral third-party mediator facilitates communication and negotiation between two parties to reach a mutually acceptable settlement in their divorce case. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties but helps them reach their own agreement on issues such as property division, child custody and support, and alimony. Mediation is designed to be a less adversarial and more collaborative process compared to traditional divorce litigation.

 

The goal of divorce mediation is to help the parties reach a fair and mutually acceptable resolution, often in a faster and less expensive manner than going to court. Mediation is also seen as a more personalized approach to divorce, as it allows the parties to have more control over the outcome of their case and reach an agreement that is tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.

Mediation is typically conducted in private and confidential sessions, with the mediator serving as a neutral facilitator to help the parties communicate and negotiate effectively. The mediator does not provide legal advice but can assist the parties in understanding the legal and financial implications of the agreements they reach.

Divorce mediation can be a good option for couples who are able to communicate effectively, have a willingness to reach a settlement, and are looking for a more collaborative and less adversarial approach to divorce. However, it may not be suitable for couples who are unable to communicate effectively or who have a history of domestic violence. In these cases, traditional divorce litigation may be a better option.
