When a couple makes the difficult decision that they no longer want to continue their marriage, they will often move forward with a divorce. There are several different methods of divorce, one of the most popular being mediation. Mediation has a number of different benefits that can allow clients to have an amicable divorce and begin their new lives as quickly and painlessly as possible, given the circumstances. During divorce mediation, a couple will have to work together to resolve contested matters of the divorce that may include the division of assets, spousal support, child support, child custody, visitation agreements, and more.
Couples that choose mediation will be able to avoid going to court and instead, will be able to carry out the divorce in a conference room setting. Each spouse will attend the mediation sessions with their own attorney and an experienced, neutral mediator will be present to help resolve disputes and guide the couple towards a successful resolution. Mediated divorces take as long or as short as a couple makes it. If they are willing to cooperate with each other and work quickly to resolve matters, it can be over it just a few sessions.
