The Benefits of a Mediated Divorce

Because of the changing perception of divorce in this country, many couples find as they go through the process that they are less interested in hurting the other party or “winning” than they are about parting ways amicably and getting on with their lives as quickly as possible. With this in mind, mediated divorce has become a popular alternative to the traditional, litigious style of divorce.

Understanding the Divorce Mediation Process

In a mediated divorce, the couple hires a mediator to serve as a neutral third party who can help guide the process and provide legal background without offering legal advice to either party. Other attorneys can be hired to represent the spouses, if warranted. The goal is to reach an amicable compromise on all the important issues of divorce, such as alimony and child support payments, division of property, and child custody.

Because there is no long, drawn-out court battle, legal fees tend to be lower in mediated divorces than in traditional divorces. And because the mediator works with the spouses to come up with a custom-made divorce agreement, both parties tend to be much happier with the compromise than they would be with court-ordered terms. As a result, they're more likely to honor the terms of the divorce.
