The Benefits of Mediation
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) method for settling divorce or other legal matters. It involves both parties settling on the details of their divorce with a neutral mediator going between the parties to facilitate the negotiation.
Some of the benefits of mediation include:
Efficiency: Successful mediation allows divorcing couples to avoid the delays and costs associated with traditional divorce litigation.
Privacy: Mediation negotiations are conducted in a more private setting than litigation. Your discussions will not be a public record for your children or others to see.
Control: Mediation allows you to craft the details of your divorce yourself — including custody and visitation, alimony, child support and other issues — rather than having a judge make these determinations for you.
