BENEFITS OF FAMILY AND DIVORCE MEDIATION:

  • Reduced Impact on Children and Families
  • Cost Savings
  • Improved Communication
  • Retain Control
  • Save Time & Avoid Delays

IMPACT ON CHILDREN


Even under relatively ideal circumstances with minimal conflict between the spouses, divorce can be traumatic for the children involved. Mediation helps parents focus on the best interests of their children. A mediator will encourage the spouses to work together for the benefit of the children.

COST SAVINGS

Most divorce lawyers require upfront deposits (retainers). Retainers often range between $3,000 to $7,500 or more for each party. So a couple will pay at least $6,000 to $15,000 just to get started! Unfortunately, much of the retainer is spent on costly legal tactics and proceedings. The cost of mediation is a small fraction compared to using two separate attorneys.

Family and divorce mediation is not a substitute for independent legal advice. We strongly recommend that each spouse consult with an attorney at some point during the mediation process.


IMPROVE COMMUNICATION

Mediation provides a neutral setting where couples can openly and confidentially discuss options, concerns, fears, and opinions. Open communication leads to better outcomes. Couples with children begin to improve the quality of their communication for future parenting.


RETAIN CONTROL

In mediation, divorcing couples do not surrender control to attorneys or a judge. A skilled mediator will guide the couple through discussions about the legal, financial, parenting, and other information needed to make their own decisions. Mediation gives a couple freedom to do what is best based on their own unique relationship, needs, and standards.

SAVE TIME & AVOID DELAYS


There is no reason why a divorce should put a family’s life on hold for months or years. Mediation will help a couple avoid getting bogged down and tied up in the legal system waiting for a court date.
