Worried About the Cost of a Divorce? Divorce Mediation is Fast, Inexpensive and Thorough.

The cost of living is high and inflation is rising, making it more important than ever to save time and money during the divorce process. One way to do this is through choosing an experienced divorce mediation attorney to help you through your divorce.

In divorce mediation, a neutral third party, known as a mediator, helps couples come to an agreement on the terms of their divorce. The mediator does not take sides or make decisions for the couple, but instead facilitates communication and helps them reach a mutually acceptable resolution.

With inflation and rising interest rates, it is essential to save money wherever possible. Additionally, although the delay with contested divorce cases in the probate and family court has dramatically improved, the backlog of court cases due to the pandemic, has still made the traditional court process even more time-consuming and expensive.

Added to the financial benefits of divorce mediation, there are also emotional benefits. Mediation allows couples to maintain a level of control over the outcome of their divorce, rather than leaving it up to a judge who may not fully understand their situation. This can lead to a more amicable and less contentious divorce, which is especially important if there are children involved.

A battle with your divorcing spouse will almost certainly be a drain on your finances. For those who have discussed divorce there may already be tension due to money issues. You might be wondering if your retirement savings will be worth as much as you thought due to inflation. You could be concerned about the availability of cash after you split your assets.

Since so many of the decisions in divorce are interconnected with finances, fighting only depletes your mutual resources. By working with a mediator, you can develop a plan that allows both parties to move forward with the resources they need. In divorce mediation you review your mutual finances to find creative solutions to the financial challenges of divorce, such as debt, home refinancing, selling real estate, selling a business and paying for your kids’ college education.

Another benefit of divorce mediation is the speed with which it can be completed. Traditional divorces can take months or even years to finalize, which can be emotionally and financially draining for both parties. Mediation, on the other hand, can be completed in a matter of weeks or months, depending on the complexity of the case. It is usually fast, inexpensive and thorough.
