Fremont Family Law Attorney explains the benefits of divorce mediation.
Many couples going through a divorce have discovered that divorce mediation is the more preferable option to fighting in the court with your spouse using attorneys. Instead of a contentious process, the spouses work with a divorce mediator to negotiate issues surrounding child support and custody, division of property and spousal support. While the decisions of the mediator are not legally binding, many clients find an amicable resolution through this process.
Divorce mediation has several benefits over a litigated settlement. Couples going through mediation typically have a more amicable relationship, which benefits the children. They also have an ownership stake in the decision since they helped create it rather than having a judge impose a decision. Mediation costs much less than litigation, often on-third of the cost of a litigated divorce. It also allows the couple to learn how to work together on contentious issues, which will benefit them down the road.
