If you are dissolving your marriage, this process does not have to unfold in a contentious litigation battle in court. Divorce mediation is an option that will allow you and your spouse to end your marriage in a more amicable manner, negotiating the terms through more peaceful negotiations. If you have children, this process will be particularly beneficial for them since it can help you and your ex maintain a more supportive co-parenting relationship.
Why You Should Consider Divorce Mediation
It is no secret that divorce can turn into an ugly, hostile experience. If you and your spouse are open to mediating your divorce, you can avoid this unnecessary headache, and navigate a more peaceful process.
Here are some of the benefits of choosing divorce mediation:
- Less expensive: Divorce litigation can become extremely expensive, especially once you start calling upon experts. Divorce mediation is typically less expensive because it requires transparency on both parts and the process is much less time-consuming.
- Better for children: The emotional impact of having to dissolve your marriage in court can substantially affect children. Since divorce mediation is a more peaceful process, it will help reduce the stress and anxiety your children may experience, making it easier for them to heal and move forward.
- Less stressful and time-consuming: Every divorce is different, but if you go through the litigation process, the average timeframe for it is 9 months to 2 years. On the other hand, divorce mediation can take anywhere from 2 to 4 months, making it a much less time-consuming, less stressful experience.
- Maintain control: During the divorce litigation process, a judge will make decisions on your behalf based on the facts presented and, unfortunately, you may not be happy with the end results. Through divorce mediation, you and your spouse will maintain more control over the outcome of your divorce since you will be negotiating the terms. You will still have to compromise, of course, but you will at least be able to exercise some control over your future.
Moreover, mediation is also a private process, which means everything will remain confidential since you will not have any hearings that become public record.
