KEY ADVANTAGES

Why Mediation is Better
  • AFFORDABLE:  Mediation is a fraction of the cost of litigation.  Divorces range in cost from $10,000 to over $100,000.  Mediation will typically cost between $2,000 - $5,000 based on the number of sessions you require.

  • FAST:  A divorce can, and often does, take years.  A mediated agreement can be achieved in 4-6 weeks.

  • CONFIDENTIAL:  The process is strictly confidential.  The agreement is confidential.  The only thing that becomes public is that a divorce decree was granted on a certain date.  No references to your assets, debt or your children.

  • EMOTIONALLY LESS TAXING THAN LITIGATION:  Mediation is a structured, short-term process that produces results quickly.  It saves you from the emotional ups and downs of a lengthy and often adversarial legal battle.

  • PARTICIPATION:  Mediation is a collaborative process.  You participate in creating the solution and are not placed in a position of having to win at all costs, but instead you work towards attaining goals that mutually benefit each other.

  • RESULTS ORIENTED:  Unlike an adversarial divorce where the two parties lawyers' interests are process (billing time) oriented, mediation is a results-oriented process. 

  • BETTER COMPLIANCE:  Research shows that compliance with mediated agreements is significantly higher.  And mediated agreements are as binding as litigated agreements.

  • PARENTING PLUS:  A significant outcome of mediation is a better relationship with your ex-partner, which often promotes more open dialogue, communication and common interest in the welfare of your children.
