Why should I hire a divorce mediator?
When a couple is going through a divorce, they should consider hiring a divorce mediator to help them iron out their issues. Mediation can help couples make tough decisions about their disputed issues. Mediation helps married couples reach a collaborative agreement on the terms that will apply to the termination of their marriage. Typically, couples find it harder to reach mutual agreements through litigation. If a couple takes the traditional divorce route, litigation could take a year or more resulting in expensive legal fees. However, mediation can save couples hundreds of dollars as it is typically a cheaper and shorter process. Additionally, many couples choose mediation as it allows them the ability to create an equitable divorce agreement. Contentious disputes may be difficult to resolve in court. Individuals feel as if they have more power through mediation and accept the terms of the termination of marriage much better than through litigation. Several married couples also turn to mediation as it can minimize hostility after the divorce is finalized as both parties are satisfied with the agreement they mutually came to. This can significantly help divorces that involve children as hostility between divorced parents can cause negative long-term effects on children. This type of conflict intervention can be extremely beneficial to married couples who cannot mutually agree on the terms that will apply to the termination of their marriage.
