What are the benefits of divorce mediation?
Mediation carries with it a number of benefits. Mediation allows for a faster and simplified process by utilizing a single mediator instead of two or more attorneys and by allowing each spouse to make collaborative decisions concerning their divorce instead of a judge having power over final decisions. This gives each spouse more power to decide what is best for them and sets a precedence of cooperation that will extend into future interactions after the divorce. Additionally, because the mediation process is usually faster and involves fewer attorneys, mediation proceedings are less expensive and complex than other methods.
