Is mediation to settle a divorce right for you?

by | Aug 25, 2010 | Alternate Dispute Resolution |

Mediation as a way to settle divorce cases is growing in popularity. If it works, it will save the parties money and will be quicker than a divorce trial. However, mediation is not for every couple. Mediation is a process that encourages compromises. If both parties are not willing to compromise to settle the issues, then mediation is not appropriate. Both parties must be willing to share financial information and look for a fair and reasonable settlement. Custody disputes are not well suited to mediation. Mediation looks to compromise by both parties meeting halfway. If both parties want primary custody, meeting halfway results in a custody situation where the child spends equal time with each parent. This may not be in the child’s best interest.
