What are the advantages of divorce mediation?
Mediation is best for couples who prefer to negotiate directly with each other to expedite the divorce and save money. Mediation, in general, also helps couples avoid nasty litigation; it is a friendlier means to an end and it allows for more flexibility than working solely through the lawyers. Mediation also helps because the mediator meets with both spouses and can read their personalities, helping to bring the divorce to a conclusion amicably.
Meditation is ideal for couples who are not hiding anything from one another - assets, debts, etc. It also helps to have a mediator who both spouses can trust to be objective.
