Previously, you may have read a blog about the benefits of mediation, but you may not be sure if you are someone in a position to make it work for you. It is true that not all people do well with mediation, and it could be the wrong choice for a divorcing couple that is dealing with significant conflicts.
However, if you and your spouse are considering alternative dispute resolution options, then this could be a good choice for you and is one that you should consider. Mediation gives you the opportunity to talk through your issues but also have a guiding hand there to discuss some of the options you may not have thought about.
Who is mediation right for?
Mediation is right for any people who are willing to be flexible and to negotiate. It is usually beneficial for people who are not going to refuse to work together with each other.
People who want to save money on the overall cost of their divorce, as well as those who would like to save time, may prefer to go through mediation since it can settle issues quickly and with minimal cost compared to other kinds of dispute resolution.
Mediation is also good for people who want to look at possible solutions without being locked into one. Did you know that mediation isn’t binding? As a result, you and your ex-spouse can take the time to discuss your options and try to come to a resolution in mediation without risk. If you don’t come up with a solution you’re happy with, you still have the right to move forward and litigate or try other types of alternative dispute resolution to resolve your conflicts.
Mediation is a good choice for people who want to end their marriages sooner
If you and your ex-partner are ready to end your marriage quickly and with less stress, going through mediation could help you do that. If this is something that you would like to explore, both of you should talk to your attorneys about the option and any special rules that may apply to your case.
