Mediation can be an excellent alternative to court proceedings for many people seeking divorce. The mediation process is accomplished by both spouses and/or their family law attorneys meeting with a third party, the “mediator”, to discuss and flesh out the terms and details of the divorce.
Mediation is usually much less expensive and time consuming than court proceedings. These particular factors are what make mediation such an attractive option for many people. When seeking a divorce via court proceedings, scheduling becomes an added stressor as it becomes necessary to schedule based on the court calendar, as well as working around the scheduling needs of both parties and their attorneys. This in and of itself will draw out the length of any divorce.
Additionally, many couples find that reaching a divorce settlement through mediation provides a better environment to work out the issues in a divorce. As divorce can be an emotionally taxing process on its own, preventing the added stress of financial and scheduling issues can result in an easier and swifter conclusion, providing a faster avenue for people to move on to the next phase of their lives.
Our office is very experienced in both representing individual clients who are going through the mediation process, as well as offering mediation services. If you have questions about the mediation process and would like to see if it might be a good fit for you, please don’t hesitate to contact The Law Office of Alan L. Finkel for a complimentary 30-minute consultation today.
