Minimizing the Emotional and Financial Cost of Divorce
Mediation is a process whereby a neutral mediator assists clients in crafting unique resolutions to their own distinct conflicts. Mediation can reduce the financial and emotional cost of contested or lengthy divorce proceedings.
A mediator acts as a neutral and does not take sides in the dispute. A mediator facilitates discussion and encourages collaboration between the parties in order to assist them in determining how best to resolve the conflict. The process can occur with or without individual lawyers. Because the parties control the outcome, they are often more satisfied with the mediated resolution than a litigated settlement. Once an agreement is mediated, the parties should each contact a lawyer to review the agreement and receive advice on how to put the agreement into a legal enforceable form. For more information on what an enforceable legal agreement is, view Legal Separation Agreements.
