Choosing a Different Option

Every divorce is different, and the unique circumstances of each relationship mean some couples benefit more from one option of resolving their issues over others. While mediation is not a one-size-fits-all solution for every divorce, it can provide couples many benefits should they choose to pursue this method of dispute resolution.

Consider the following circumstances that work well with mediation if you are deciding whether or not to pursue this method of resolving disputes.

When Savings Are Important

Divorce can be both costly and time-consuming, so it is natural to want to do whatever you can to cut down the expenses and time spent working through the process. Depending on the issues present in a divorce, mediation can often be completed rather quickly, and since time saved equals money saved, it often makes a great option for couples who want to save as much time and money as possible.

When Control is Important

One of the benefits of mediation is that it puts the control in the hands of the parties collaborating on an agreement. While your mediator is there to facilitate the discussions you have, you and your spouse are empowered to work together and talk about the issues you face openly and honestly. Litigation puts control and the decision-making in the hands of the court; those who wish to have that control should choose mediation.

When Peace is Important

Perhaps what people associate most with mediation is the emphasis on a more peaceful process. While that does not guarantee the discussions won’t get heated, the overall process of mediation tends to be more peaceful and less heated than litigation. Mediation makes for a great option for couples who plan on co-parenting and wish to provide an example for their children or for couples who wish to remain on good terms with one another after their divorce.
