What are the advantages of mediation?

Divorce or legal separation can be extremely stressful and overwhelming for couples in New Jersey and across the United States. There is an array of emotions attached to divorce and these feelings can make it difficult to create a comprehensive divorce settlement. In some cases, however, couples are able to discuss these issues in a civil manner and customize a settlement that will meet their specific needs.

According to the American Bar Association, there are advantages to mediation as opposed to going through courtroom litigation. For instance, couples who manage their divorce through mediation can settle terms quicker than they would if they went through traditional court. Couples are able to schedule their own mediation appointments rather than wait for lengthy court dates. Furthermore, there are no court costs associated, which can make this a more affordable option.

Although attorneys’ presence is not required during mediation sessions, couples can bring an attorney to help them make difficult decisions during this hard time. The sessions are overseen by a third-party mediator who is available to answer questions and guide the session. Couples may be more compliant with the terms of the divorce when they have had a direct role in creating the settlement. When customizing a settlement, couples can come up with terms that may not have been available to them otherwise. After the mediation sessions, people may be able to interact with each other in a more positive manner.
