The Value of Divorce Mediation
The Value of Divorce Mediation

The process of divorce is a notoriously messy one. Along with emotional disarray, it involves the distribution of debts and assets, prospective spousal support or alimony, and, potentially, child custody arrangements. As the divorcing couple attempts to divide what once was one into two compromised and satisfying portions, disagreement often follows. To settle this dispute, parties often bring their cases to court in an attempt to retain some property the other party has been unwilling to sacrifice. The drawbacks to this approach include its expense and the loss of control over the result. There is, however, another path that often yields surprising results; that approach is mediation.

Mediation has helped many couples resolve their differences when compromise seemed impossible. In divorce mediation, the husband and wife meet with a mediator who works diligently to reach an agreement where the couple could not do so. The mediator offers an essential, objective perspective and provides an open line for communication. The mediator helps the divorcing couple to focus on the issues at hand, and to avoid painful digressions that result only in unfruitful argument.

By undergoing this process, the couple is empowered to successfully reach a compromise that was previously unavailable due to emotion and unreasonable demands. Though mediation, like every attempt at problem-solving, does not have a 100% success rate, it acts as the most flexible, confidential, cost-effective, and efficient means for reaching a resolution.
