Divorce is widely regarded as one of the most stressful of all life events, in line with the death of a loved one, the loss of a job and relocating. This stress of divorce can weigh heavily on every member of your family, including your children. You may find yourself feeling sad, angry, resentful, lonely, anxious and overwhelmed, which can make it very difficult to see a way forward. Partnering with a divorce mediator to settle your divorce can reduce the overall stress on you and your family and shorten the process so that you can move forward more quickly.

Using Mediation to Settle your Divorce Reduces Stress
There is no way to avoid the pain and stress of divorce. Divorce is difficult and the stress of a court battle can weigh heavily on a family. Mediation allows you to settle all of the important aspects of your divorce – including division of joint property, child custody and child/spousal support – without litigation. The financial stress of a divorce can be the source of intense stress for a couple. It is important to understand that divorce mediation costs significantly less than working through the courts, because you are not paying 2 lawyers for their time. In addition, mediation takes a fraction of the time of a court battle, which also minimizes the financial impact and also allows you to move forward with your life more quickly. Many report that these two factors decrease the pain and stress associated with the divorce process.
