Divorce mediation is a form of a guided dialogue between the parties, with the mediator keeping the discussion civil and focused. Most importantly, the mediation lawyer is not the decision-maker, the parties are.
Mediation services have several advantages over litigation or other forms of ADR:
Mediation is the least expensive form of formal dispute resolution;
Mediation is usually the quickest way to resolve your dispute;
You determine the outcome, not the mediation lawyer or other third party;
The agreement is not effective until you sign the agreement;
You can terminate the mediation at any time;
The mediation process focuses on the future and a resolution that suits both parties;
You can use mediation services while retaining your dignity and self-respect; you have crafted your own solution, rather than being dragged through the mud and having someone else (a judge) tell you what to do;
Studies show that the other side is more likely to comply with an agreement he or she has helped create through mediation, thereby reducing the stress and expense of post-judgment conflict;
You can write an agreement with much more creative solutions than a court can or will. To paraphrase one judge, 'Why would you trust a stranger (the judge) to make your most important decisions for you?'
