The Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Depending on the facts of your case, divorce mediation could provide you with many benefits over traditional divorce litigation. Divorce mediation is one of the fastest growing options for couples navigating a divorce as it provides a less contentious and more amicable environment to discuss issues and finalize your split.

Hirschberg in Boca Raton today to schedule a free consultation of your case.
Creating a Better Environment
One of the biggest benefits to divorce mediation is taking the discussion out of the courtroom and away from the contentious environment of litigation. Traditional litigation is rooted in fighting each other on all issues that you disagree on with your spouse by collecting evidence and making the best possible arguments for why the other side is wrong. Divorce mediation is rooted in alternative dispute resolution techniques, where you and your spouse discuss and negotiate a solution to your outstanding issues. It has the potential to significantly decrease anxiety, stress, and the emotionally fraught environment of the courtroom.
Time and Money Savings
Another significant benefit to divorce mediation is the time and money savings that this process can provide. Because divorce mediation takes place outside of the courtroom, it allows spouses to meet on days and times that work best for them and not the court schedule. This also allows multiple sessions to happen quickly or for spouses to manage all of their outstanding issues in a single session, thus saving each spouse a significant amount of time. This in turn can result in serious cost savings for each spouse in court costs and attorneys’ fees, thereby providing more financial stability for each spouse starting out with their new lives.
Additional Benefits for Family
Finally, for couples navigating a divorce when minor children are involved, divorce mediation can lay the groundwork for good future communication between parents when it comes to their child’s needs. Unlike traditional litigation that pits one parent against the other, divorce mediation encourages compromise and collaboration between parents to find a solution to issues like child custody, visitation, and support. This makes it easier after the divorce is finalized to continue civilized discourse between parents when it comes to their child, which will be necessary at a minimum until the child turns eighteen years old. By communicating well during divorce mediation, this can also decrease the stress and anxiety felt by the children during this difficult time.
