What is divorce mediation?

Divorce mediation is a method of alternate dispute resolution, focused on helping couples avoid court and the burdens attached. With the help of a mediator, a couple can discuss terms of their divorce and, hopefully, come to an agreement in writing. A mediator’s goal is to guide a couple through every significant, unresolved issue. The divorce mediator represents neither party and works to get the couple to agree to a resolution. A mediator is responsible for ensuring that both parties feel comfortable enough to speak freely. Mediation is a series of sessions that center around a mutual goal. The time it takes to resolve these issues depends on the couple. There is no time limit or constraints at all. The couple can take as long as they need. Once the sessions are complete, the mediator will draft a Separation Agreement to be used if the couple wishes to divorce.

Why are people turning to mediation?

Divorce mediation has many potential benefits. Avoiding litigation is in everyone’s best interest. Courts often explore the practicality of alternate dispute resolution before diving into divorce cases. When a couple engages in mediation, they can:

  • Save time and money
  • Are often happier with the results
  • Avoid the emotional toll on themselves
  • Trust in the confidentiality of the process
  • Mitigate the impact of the divorce on the family
  • Retain control over their future
