Why do people choose mediation?
When individuals are thinking about their options for divorce, many people consider mediation. It is becoming an increasingly popular method of divorce that allows couples to avoid an exhausting and bitter court battle that many people experience during the process of litigation. The reason that so many couples are choosing to get divorced through mediation is that there are a wide variety of benefits. Some of these benefits include the following:
- Couples can make decisions for themselves instead of relying on a judge to control their future. Since the divorce doesn’t have a judge, the couple can take control of every decision that is made.
- Mediated divorces are often much more efficient than litigated divorces because the couple can schedule sessions on their own time instead of waiting to schedule a court date, which can take a long time.
- Typically, mediated divorces are less expensive than litigated divorces are because the couple doesn’t have to pay for costly court fees, only their attorneys and the cost of mediation sessions.
- The couple will be able to set a good example of dispute resolution for their children and often have a better parenting structure after the divorce as a result.
