Mediation allows for a family to come to a mutual agreement, with the presence of a third-party mediator who is uninvolved in the matter and maintains neutrality. Because the mediator is an external party, he/she provides logical guidance and advice to the two parties involved.
For example, if both spouses are unable to come to an agreement during a divorce, hiring a mediator can be the most effective way to come to a settlement. The presence of a fair lawyer will ensure that you are not being taken advantage of during the mediation process. Divorce mediation allows both parties to sit with a certified mediator to assist, guide, discuss and resolve various divorce issues regarding support, alimony, custody, assets and debts.
Unlike litigation, mediation allows the parties involved to make decisions regarding divorce issues like division of assets, child support, child custody, and others. If both parties can reach an agreement outside of court, they will save themselves stress as well as money and time.
Leaving the decision up to the court can lead to bitterness and even failure of the two parties to follow through with their responsiblibites of the divorce settlement. The use of a mediator can relieve some of the stress and leave both parties in a happier state leading to a less damaged family.
