What are the Benefits of Divorce Mediation?

Posted on in Divorce

Naperville divorce mediators

Marriage is supposed to be a partnership with both sides working together. Sometimes that does not occur and the marriage ends in divorce. If you are thinking about divorce but do not want to go through a lengthy court battle and you believe you can work through the divorce process with your spouse, divorce mediation could be the best choice for you.

What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation is used as an alternative method of resolving a divorce case. With mediation, a third party works with the couple to resolve all issues covered in their divorce agreement, including child custody, child support, and spousal maintenance. The mediator listens to both sides and crafts an agreement that is satisfying to both parties. 

Divorce Mediation Cost 

Divorce litigation is often long, arduous, and costly. If spouses are combative over every issue, the process can take a long time to resolve. With mediation, even if spouses are not on good terms, they can work together and decrease the time it takes to resolve the divorce, thus accruing fewer legal and court fees. 

Children and Divorce 

When spouses decide they want to try mediation for their divorce instead of litigation, it can have a positive effect on their children. Children can see their parents cooperate together to resolve their differences and work toward a common goal. Even if they are not happy about the divorce, seeing their parents work together will have a positive effect compared to seeing them fight in a lengthy court battle. 

More Control Over Your Divorce

With a divorce mediator, you work with them and your spouse to resolve elements as they specifically relate to you and your family situation. If you go through litigation, the judge may make decisions you do not agree with, and you may have less control over your divorce and post-divorce life. With a mediator, you can discuss your options with your spouse and come to a solution you both agree on.
