Benefits of Mediation

People who have litigated a divorce have described the experience as "a nightmare", "dehumanizing", and "unjust".  A major complaint is the amount of control attorneys and the courts have over significant, personal and long-term decisions. If your goal is to remain amicable and avoid the inevitable hostility of an adversarial process, then mediation is your best option.  Through mediation, you remain in control of all the decisions and your mediator guides you through negotiations based on your desires and concerns and the needs and interests of your children.
