There are some major benefits to consider, if you and your spouse can work together and you agree to mediate and design your own Divorce Solution.
In mediation you take it upon yourself to make your own decisions. It is less likely that you will have to return to Court in the future because you have each participated in reaching the outcome of the case and it was not forced upon either of you by the Court.
You and your spouse know the most about your situation so you have the most informed people making the decisions.
Successful Mediation places you and your spouse in a better position to communicate more effectively after the divorce when new disputes may arise.
Mediation avoids court battles which adds to the stress of the divorce and often further deteriorate the trust and respect between you and your spouse.
Mediation is confidential and your personal issues are not aired in court rooms and publicly accessible court files.
Your children are not exposed to all the negatives that come with a contested traditional divorce.
Divorce mediation is cost-effective because you are not paying for the fight, but for work on coming up with a solution.
