Mediation Or The Court To Settle Divorce?
Mediated divorce tends to be significantly less expensive than traditional court-based divorces, in part because there is less likely to be an adversarial component present. Without opposing lawyers representing both people, the likelihood of conflict decreases. A divorce mediator, by nature and definition, tries to minimize the negative impact of conflict and works to help you and your divorcing partner find the most workable solutions for all involved. Mediation also takes less time, allowing you to settle the important aspects of your divorce in weeks not months. Mediation is entirely confidential and also allows for creative solutions to the issues such as parenting agreements, spousal/child support payments and division of assets.
If you have children, that facet of mediated divorce takes on new importance. When divorcing parents are able to settle their differences with less conflict, they are better able to focus attention and energy on the well being of their children. But regardless of the level of conflict that exists between you and your spouse, a divorce mediator like Lesa Koski can help you get through a very difficult time with less conflict and a greater sense of readiness to get on with the rest of your life.
