The Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is an informal dispute resolution process. Traditional court litigation requires a level of formality that can burden a divorcing couple with great expense and delay, and a trial can often become highly adversarial and combative. Mediation can significantly lower the costs of obtaining a divorce or resolving a child custody or visitation dispute. Divorce mediation can allow you and your spouse to maintain a good, working relationship long after an amicable divorce agreement is reached.
