The Benefits Of Mediation For Divorcing Couples

During the mediation process, you and your partner/spouse will sit down with your mediator, who will help you find areas of agreement and keep you working toward solutions for areas of disagreement, whether it is child custody, alimony or property division. Most couples who choose mediation to resolve their issues find that it is beneficial because it is an:

  • Affordable and efficient option for divorce
  • Allows you and your spouse/partner to work out your issues in private
  • Allows you and your spouse/partner to remain in control of the process

Studies show that both spouses are much more likely to honor mediated settlement agreements and modify them when necessary without conflict, reducing the possibility of future disputes. Additionally, by working together now, it can help you to work together in the future – a tremendous benefit if you have children. Courts order couples into mediation in nearly all cases.
