Minnesota Mediators | Who & Why to Choose Mediation?

February 20, 2016

Divorce Mediation MNThe months and years leading up to a divorce are incredibly trying and emotionally taxing and once you and your partner have decided that divorce is the best option moving forward, you will next need to decide how to navigate the divorce process. Mediation is fast becoming a popular, reliable and effective choice for couples who want to avoid the additional stress of a contentious, lengthy courtroom battle.

You might be a strong candidate for the family/divorce mediation process if you and your spouse can still communicate about mutual issues such as your children and your finances. Open lines of communication are a key to successful mediation. If one person has decided to completely stop communicating or is hostile toward the other, then mediation might not be the best solution for you. Here are some additional benefits of mediation that may make it a tenable solution for your divorce:

  • Mediation is less expensive and takes less time than settling your divorce via the court system.
  • The communication in mediation is confidential; you do not have to share the specifics of your difficult situation in front of a judge in a courtroom. The conversations of mediation are not part of the public record.
  • Mediation may be easier on your family unit. Resolving issues such as child custody, child support and the division of assets and debts sooner rather than later can put less stress on your family and allow everyone (children and adults) to move forward more quickly.
  • Mediation allows you to find solutions to settle your divorce that the court system might not be able to accommodate. It allows for out of the box thinking so to speak — you and your ex-spouse can think creatively about unique solutions that will work for your family.
