Some of the benefits of hiring a divorce mediator
- A mediator is cheaper than a lawyer.
- You can decide a time to schedule meeting with your spouse however, in a court settlement, the judge decides date for you.
- It is a flexible procedure unlike trials that happen in courts.
- A mediator only looks at the present as well as future and helps spouses to come at a position where both accept the deal without getting into the messy past.
- With a mediator you make decision unlike court where the judge makes a decision and you are bound to follow it.
- A courtroom battle is ugly where all your secrets become public and your children are victim to everything. At least in a mediator room your concerns and issues remain confidential.
It isn’t bad to involve your lawyer into a divorce mediation process because the agreement should be thoroughly read by your attorney, before you sign it.
