Benefits of Mediation
Couples who opt for mediation report a higher satisfaction rate than those who handle their disputes at trial, according the American Bar Association. Participants of mediation are generally more committed to adhering to the conditions of their settlement, as mediation allows for control over the outcome of the proceedings. When you are not leaving the terms of your agreement to a judge, you can decide what works best for you and your family.
Apart from the focus and attention you will receive through mediation, there are multiple specific advantages. Advantages of mediation include:
- Mediation can often be completed in a few weeks, much faster than traditional alternatives.
- Mediation is less expensive than trial.
- The process is less formal and more comfortable than trial.
- Everything is private, as opposed to trials, which are matters of public record.
Mediation focuses much more on the personal and emotional needs of the family than trial proceedings do. Our attorneys encourage you to tell your story so that we can understand your emotional needs. We can help you solve problems without burning bridges.
