What Are the Benefits of Divorce Mediation?

Going through a divorce is usually a difficult process for all parties, particularly when children are involved. But it doesn’t have to be. If you and your spouse are capable of working together, a mediated divorce could save you plenty of headache — and money.

In a mediated divorce, a neutral facilitator works with both spouses in order to reach resolutions to all issues in the divorce, such as child custody agreements, alimony and property division. Rather than fight it out in court, an expensive and sometimes ugly process, a mediator helps parties focus on how to proceed in the future with everyone’s best interest in mind.

This is a less stressful and emotionally draining process than a more traditional divorce. Some of the benefits of mediation include:

  • Less expensive and usually much faster than a traditional divorce
  • Handled outside of the courtroom and completely private
  • Promotes healthy communication between parties
  • Both parties get an equal chance to be heard
  • It can protect children from some of the worst aspects of divorce, like court battles
  • You create your own terms, and the mediation will not end until both of you agree on those terms

Mediation is a relatively new option that has had a positive outcome for thousands of divorcees. Of course, it only works if spouses are willing to try and work together. Contact an experienced Lubbock mediation divorce attorney for a consultation today to find out if mediation is right for you.
