Ultimately, we find that mediation is an excellent fit for those who would like to retain control over the final decisions in their divorce and, with the help of a mediator, are able to work with their spouse to compromise and reach agreements that are acceptable to both. The neutral party is able to facilitate and guide you through the process and draft your final documents.
At the end of the day, the mediation process helps to preserve a workable relationship between the two parties. There can’t be enough good said about this, particularly for those couples who still have children at home and will need to continue communicating in the future. It is a process that addresses not only the legal and financial aspects of your case, but also the emotional ones; it is designed to keep everyone working with, rather than against, one another. The fact is divorce is hard – there’s no reason to make it harder.
