Why Choose Divorce Mediation?

June 16, 2016

Why Choose Divorce Mediation?Divorce mediation is a highly effective method of solving important issues during a divorce.  It  allows the divorcing couple the ability to take control of the issues that are a priority for them during the divorce process.  Every divorce is unique and each couple has their own set of priorities that need to be addressed before they can move forward in a healthy way.  Divorce mediation is a collaborative process–rather than an adversarial one.  Johnson Mediation is a leading divorce mediation company in the Chanhassen, MN area that provides exceptional support for the logistical, emotional and legal processes of divorce.

Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Traditionally, most divorcing couples have gone through the court system to end their marriage.  However, over the last decade mediation has become another popular and highly effective option for those looking for an alternative to a lengthy court battle. Mediation offers many benefits over going through the court system. One of the primary benefits is that mediation allows couples that are separating or divorcing to take control over planning the next phase of their life. Mediation offers a safe environment for productive discussions that can lead to compromise. Parents that are divorcing find meditation helpful for laying the groundwork for joint decisions even after the divorce.

Other notable benefits of mediation are:

  1. Less expensive: Mediation costs less than a court battle.  Many estimate that settling a divorce via the courts costs between two and ten times the cost of mediation.
  2. Takes less time: Mediation generally takes 3-4 two hour meetings to settle important decisions such as child custody, child support and division of marital assets and debts.  A court battle can take months.
  3. Highly confidential: All conversations that take place in mediation are highly confidential.  Neither party can use what is said during mediation in the courts.
  4. Sets a positive tone for future communication: A mediator can help foster a healthy environment where compromise can be found. Most couples (especially with children) need to be able to communicate long after the divorce is final.
  5. High compliance rates: Because the agreements that are reached in mediation are created by the couple, both parties are much more willing to adhere to the terms.
