Why Choose Mediation?
There are many reasons to choose mediation over litigation to achieve your divorce.
- more affordable
- less adversarial
In addition, divorce mediation:
- offers you more control
- encourages better and more direct communication between you and your partner
- gives both parties more control over the process and the tone and the decisions made
And, if you have children:
- Mediation is a kinder, gentler path to a divorce decree than a lengthy court battle.
Court is, and was designed to be, adversarial. It’s a battle between opposing sides, and the judge is in control and has the final say.
Mediation is, and was designed to be, a negotiation between the parties involved: you and your partner. You are in control and have the final say.
Divorce is painful enough for both the parties divorcing and their children. Why approach it in a manner that often results in more pain, more hurt feelings, and more animosity?
In addition, with so many life-changing decisions to be made, why put their ultimate outcome in someone else’s hands?
Through mediation, you and your partner can negotiate to make those decisions and reach agreements through those negotiations – not have them dictated to you by a judge.
Save time, save money, and save more heartache. Maintain control. Those are among the main reasons to choose mediation.
