Divorce can be stressful and demanding of both your time and energy. Numerous court dates and appearances make the process a grueling one. Litigation should be a last resort, as it expensive and can worsen already irresoluble disagreements. An alternative to litigation is mediation, a process that allows spouses to voice their concerns of the divorce into constructive dialogues that effectively bring about resolutions. Mediation occurs in private where contested matters such as alimony and child custody are overseen by an unbiased mediator.

Compared to the litigation process in which the judge rules in her accord, utilizing mediation can afford a level of power over you future by allowing you opportunities to speak up about your concerns. Essentially, mediation lets you control the outcome of the divorce. Central to a successful mediation process is good faith negotiation, meaning that both spouses must engage in full financial disclosure.
