What is divorce mediation?
Many people may be familiar with the term mediation, but unaware of the actual purpose of mediation. Mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution, is simply a way for two parties to resolve conflicts without the time and expense of going to court. Divorce mediation, specifically, allows couples to negotiate and resolve disputes before obtaining a final judgement of divorce. The mediator is a neutral third party who facilitates open and honest discussions in a non-adversarial atmosphere. Once the parties have reached a mutually agreeable settlement, the court approves the settlement and issues a final decree of divorce.
What are the benefits of divorce mediation?
There are many benefits to utilizing mediation techniques. Mediation allows parties to:
- Save money by resolving disputes without costly litigation and court expenses
- Communicate in a non-threatening environment and resolve conflicts through discussion and negotiation
- Maintain an amicable relationship without the stress of tense litigation
- Reach a favorable conclusion in a much shorter time period
Through the discussion and compromise facilitated by mediation, couples are able to maintain a sense of control over serious issues that impact their financial and personal lives. Divorce mediation provides an avenue for spouses to make their own decisions without waiting for the Court to analyze a laundry list of factors and issue a court order. White Plains divorce mediation attorney Karen Jansen has worked with numerous couple over the past decade, guiding them toward positive resolutions.
