Advantages That Come With Mediation For Divorce

Irene Robertson

Divorce can be an ugly battle if the divorcing couple isn't careful. There are three ways things can go: the couple can divorce while still having a solid relationship which can be important when raising children, they can divorce while being amicable, or they can divorce through a heated battle with plenty of animosity. An ugly divorce isn't pleasant for either side and a lot of the ugliness can be avoided through the use of mediation. Learn about some of the other advantages that come with mediation.

Both parties can save money

A divorce can already be a costly thing to go through, with each party needing to take on new expenses. If both parties can both agree to go through the process with the help of a mediator, then they can each save on some of the legal fees that can often become quite large, especially when there is a lot of arguing throughout the divorce. By putting an end to the arguing before it even starts through the use of mediation, both can enjoy some savings. 

Things can speed along faster

People don't want to be caught up in a lengthy divorce when they start the process. They want to put the process behind them and move on. Unfortunately, when a lot of back and forth arguing happens because the parties can't come to an agreement, a divorce can take much longer to get through. Mediation can help the divorcing couple to get through with the divorce a lot faster by helping both parties to come to compromises in which each of them feels as if they got what they wanted, while sacrificing what they were willing to do without. 

The divorcing couple have the say

While the judge can refuse something they don't find right, in most cases, the judge will agree with what the divorcing couple have agreed upon in mediation. This allows each to have their divorce settled with things they approved of during the process. Otherwise, if they end up arguing throughout the process, and if it is left to the judge, there is a good possibility that one or both members of the couple may be very unsatisfied with things like the way the child custody, the division of assets, and other judgments went. When they both agree to things in mediation, there will likely be no surprises and they will know what they can expect.
