There are many advantages to choosing mediation over litigation. Divorce mediation is ideal for couples who are willing to work together to resolve issues such as child support, child custody, visitation, and equitable distribution. This amicable route allows couples to make their own decisions about their lives and their children's lives instead of leaving it up to judges who are not familiar with their needs and concerns. In addition, mediation can greatly reduce the overall effects of divorce and make life less stressful for all parties involved. Finally, it saves couples a lot of money.
Divorce mediation is a method of alternative dispute resolution, focused on helping couples avoid court and the burdens attached. With the help of a mediator, a couple can discuss terms of their divorce and, hopefully, come to an agreement in writing.
A mediator's goal is to guide a couple through every significant, unresolved issue. The divorce mediator represents neither party and works to get the couple to agree to a resolution. A mediator is responsible for ensuring that both parties feel comfortable enough to speak freely. Mediation is a series of sessions that center around a mutual goal. The time it takes to resolve these issues depends on the couple.
There is no time limit or constraints at all. The couple can take as long as they need. Once the sessions are complete, the mediator will draft a Separation Agreement to be used if the couple wishes to divorce.
