Reasons Why Divorce Mediation is More Peaceful Than Litigation

Going through a divorce is not easy, but it does not have to be a big fight in court. Divorce mediation is generally a more peaceful process, and it allows for a more successful outcome. There are numerous reasons why mediation may be a good option.

Divorce Mediation Involves More Communication

A mediator is a neutral third party who helps the couple come to a divorce agreement. A mediator allows each side to communicate their feelings, needs and wants. This means both sides get to be heard, and the process usually results in better communication after the divorce as well.

Allows for More Collaboration

The goal is to have each party decide together on the best outcome. Although the process is not always easy, the mediator has the skills to help each party work through disagreements and provide creative solutions. Each side learns to negotiate and collaborate for what is best for each of them, and any children involved.

Results in a Fair Agreement

A court battle often results in one side winning and the other losing. Mediation, on the other hand, helps the couple come up with an agreement that is fair and equitable.
