What are the advantages of Divorce Mediation?

As a Family Law Litigator, I am familiar with the financial, emotional and psychological costs of a protracted divorce case.

Emotions and legal fees often run very high in Divorce Litigation.

mediation is private

Our system of justice is adversarial and public.  Divorce litigation airs your most intimate personal and financial details in a public court of law.



Divorce Mediation is often more cost-effective than litigation.  The mediator is a neutral who works with the parties and/or their attorneys toward the goal of complete divorce resolution.

Mediation is time-efficient

Divorce Mediation is much more time-efficient than litigation.  Yours is the only case that the mediator will schedule for the mediation session and you set the time and date of the mediation.
