It is common for people to think that court is the only option when getting a divorce. Although this is the perception, this is not the only way and is often the lesser of the two. Divorce mediation is actually a more affordable, mutual and beneficial way to help couples that are separating. There are many benefits of a mediated divorce such as:
● Significantly Controls costs, both financially and emotionally
● Opportunity to be creative and address important non-legal issues
● Benefits children by reducing conflict
● Establishes a foundation for effective co-parenting
● Mediated agreements tend to be more satisfying than imposed court orders
● Focuses on the present and future, not the past
Today mediation is becoming increasingly popular, in fact, around 89-90% of divorces in Minnesota are settled before they even reach a courtroom. Mediation is so effective that the State of Minnesota requires you to make a good faith effort to settle your divorce through Alternative Dispute resolution (ADR) before appearing in Court.
Mediators help guide couples through difficult conversations, keep the lines of communication open, keep couples on track and make sure to avoid fights and other off-topic conversations while trying to make decisions. Although mediators are not decision makers, they have to possess the skills to help couples through rough patches and set the tone for the conversations. It is wise to interview mediators and select one who respects fairness, understands your unique situation, and helps create solutions that will work for you.
