The Benefits of Mediation

Most divorces, more than 95%, settle—they do not go to trial—and most divorces end up in mediation. Judges order the parties to mediation if the attorneys cannot settle on their own.

    • You protect your children from the turmoil and divisiveness of a court battle between their parents;
    • You avoid the public disclosure of your personal conflict because divorce mediation is confidential, unlike divorce court proceedings;
    • You avoid the delays, excessive legal bills, and trauma that result from the traditional adversarial divorce court process;

    • You resolve all issues -- child custody, child support, parenting time, property division and spousal support-- without going to war with your spouse; and
    • You make the decisions for yourself about your children and your property, instead of having them pushed on you by attorneys or forced on you by a judge.

Mediation Works!

Abraham Lincoln believed that attorneys should serve as peacemakers. In his notes for a law lecture, he wrote: "Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser—in fees, expenses, and a waste of time. As a peacemaker, the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good person*."


A good divorce mediator can help both parties reduce the long-lasting pain, grief, and bitterness that so frequently is promoted in the typical adversarial divorce scenario.


*The actual quote is "...being a good man."
