Perhaps the most appealing aspect of mediation is the fact that it takes place outside of the courtroom. Instead, you and your spouse will discuss your issues in a private room with a qualified mediator and your personal legal counsel. Other important benefits are:
- More control over the divorce process: Unlike traditional divorce proceedings, mediation allows the parties to determine all aspects concerning the terms and conditions of their divorce. For example, the parties involved decide when and where to discuss the terms of the divorce, as well as what to discuss.
- Promotes communication: Rather than relying on a court and/or judge to make crucial decisions regarding the outcome of your divorce, mediation relies on cooperation and communication between both parties to reach an agreement that everyone feels comfortable with.
- Private: Divorce through litigation takes place in a courtroom; before a judge, jury, and witnesses. If there are personal details of divorce that neither party would like to discuss publicly, they will have no choice in the courtroom. However, in mediation, parties can discuss personal details in the privacy of a closed room.
- Less Expensive: Divorce through mediation is an inexpensive option compared to divorce through litigation.
How Long Does Divorce Mediation Take?
The amount of time it takes to mediate your case depends on how complex it is and how much you and your spouse are willing to compromise. On average, a simple case will take 3-4 two-hour sessions. By contrast, a complicated case could take months to successfully mediate. Even then, mediation is still generally much faster than litigation.
