Clients who are thinking about the mediation process ask me what some of the benefits are. Some of the benefits are the parties are less angry after they get through the process. When people engage in the mediation process, the husband and wife are coming to an accord or an agreement at the help of the mediator. There is no winner or loser. Because of that, it’s generally less difficult on the children. In addition, mediation sessions generally cost less than divorce and they will have fewer sessions so it’s usually a quicker process as well.
