Reasons to Hire a Mediator When You and Your Spouse Mostly Agree
You and your spouse agree that divorce is the only option, but you can’t agree on property division, child custody, or anything else. You might think going to court is the only option. However, hiring a divorce mediator might be your best option, especially if you and your spouse can find common ground on most issues. Here are some reasons why using a mediator might be the best option for couples who agree on most divorce issues.
A Mediator Save Time
A mediator can save you time in the divorce process. You and your spouse will not have to spend time with an attorney. You will not have to go through the discovery process. You will not have to attend a trial. You will not have to file post-trial motions. Finally, you will not have to wait for a judge to issue a decision.
A Mediator Saves Money
Though you and your spouse mostly agree, there may be some small matters on which you cannot agree. By hiring a mediator, you can save money because you will not have to go to court. In addition, mediation is often faster than going to court.
Focus On Problem-Solving
When you hire a mediator, you will have an objective third party to help facilitate communication and resolve conflict. The mediator can be helpful when you and your spouse mostly agree but need some help communicating effectively or breaking through an impasse.
