Why divorce Mediation?

People whom have undergone dispute resolution through mediation have found it a much better resolution process than others they've used, particularly divorce trials. Some of the customary reasons heard are provided below.

Divorce with dignity

Divorce mediation provides a means by which spouses can end their marital relationship through a dignified manner, and without ripping one another part during negotiations.

Less costly than litigation

Divorce mediation provides a means by which the process is much less costly than a trial or the ongoing litigation that sends costs spinning out of control.

Spouses divide property

Divorce mediation provides an opportunity for spouses to divide their properties as they see fit, rather than be at the mercy of a Court to make those decisions.

Equality in decisions

During Divorce Mediation, your Mediator will help ensure equality in voicing your opinion for the final agreement, as well as equality in the decisions that are reached.


Divorce Mediation is behind closed doors, rather than in open Courtrooms. Your Lawyer Mediator will also help you ensure that the records from your divorce are properly sealed.

Own your destinies

Divorce Mediation helps provide the means by which each spouse equally contributes to the final decisions and owns their own destiny for their future.
