WHY MEDIATE A DIVORCE?
The goal of mediation is to reach a mutually acceptable Marital Settlement
Agreement and take all other steps necessary to accomplish the dissolution
of a marriage. If done in this fashion, the emotional and financial strain
divorce actions put on families will be greatly reduced, if not entirely
Divorce actions often degenerate into an all-out war. It does no good
for one spouse to offer to divide property equally and provide ample support
if the other spouse's objective is to destroy. In a mediated Divorce it
is essential that both parties share all pertinent information so that
all issues relative to the divorce can be negotiated in good faith. Otherwise,
in litigation, whatever money or property you have accumulated during
your marriage will probably be consumed entirely by your lawyers because
of the high cost of the litigation process.
Mediation also provides a great deal of privacy. In court it is common
for 40-50 cases to be on calendar any given morning. When your case is
heard, there are 40-50 other couples listening to your private affairs
being revealed in an open courtroom. Do you really want strangers to know
what assets you have, where you live, when you visit your kids, what you
pay in support, what you earn, etc.?
Mediation is cost effective and keeps your personal affairs private.
