If you and your spouse want to make your lives easier during divorce, you may want to consider the mediation process. With mediation, you’re both agreeing to discuss how you end your marriage, the distribution of your assets, custody concerns and other issues in a respectful manner.
Why opt for mediation? Here are three reasons why it’s a great opportunity for resolution.
Mediation is cost-effective
The first reason to think about mediation is because of how cost-effective it is. When you don’t need to go to court for multiple hearings or take up much of your attorney’s time, you’ll notice that you spend much less on your divorce. People who use mediation may be able to avoid litigation, which means you’ll spend less overall.
Mediation keeps your divorce confidential
Another reason to try mediation is the privacy it affords you. When a divorce goes to trial, most of what happens is public. In mediation, anything you discuss remains private.
Mediation helps you learn to cooperate
If you and your ex-spouse will be in communication in the future due to working together, having children together or other situations, mediating is a good idea. Mediation fosters cooperation, and that means that you’ll learn to work together. At the same time, the outcome of your negotiations is more likely to be agreeable to both parties, so you’ll be in a better mental state with one another moving forward.
These are three good reasons to use mediation for resolutions. Your attorney can give you more information on why mediation may be right for you when you decide to go through a divorce.
