Divorce doesn’t need to be a long, drawn out process that leaves both parties feeling drained emotionally and financially. While many choose to go to court, a lengthy and expensive court battle may not be the best option available to you. Many couples that are seeking divorce aren’t aware that mediation services can save you a lot of time, headaches, and stress. However, there typically needs to be a certain amount of cooperation between the divorcees to facilitate mediation.
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a nonbinding agreement of both divorcees to attempt to settle out of court with a neutral third party called the mediator. It offers benefits such as reduced costs compared to court based divorce proceedings and is a much quicker process. The idea is to compromise and find common ground, and the mediator will not favor either side of the divorce. In the end, mediation is financially and emotionally healthier for the family of the divorcees.
