Divorce mediation is a way to settle your divorce through a process where the parties sit down with a qualified mediator. The mediator is a neutral third-party who specializes in divorce law and can assist you in reaching a settlement. In this process, the mediator will explain how the laws apply to the divorce, state child support guidelines, and property division rules. This allows the parties to come to a mutual agreement, and the mediator will guide them through the negotiation process.
Unlike litigation, divorce mediation is a private and confidential process. The process can take 6 months or longer, and long gaps between court dates can result in trouble brewing. You can decide to stop mediation at any time. Moreover, you are free to leave at any time. This means you never have to worry about your worst fears coming true. You can always terminate the process at any point. In addition, divorce mediation is much more efficient than a traditional litigated divorce.
