Many people want to know whether mediation is cheaper than a regular divorce. Again, every married couple has their own particular way of handling problems. Some may take longer than others. Generally speaking, mediation will be less expensive than a litigated divorce or a collaborative divorce. The difference is you are only paying for one professional, the mediator, instead of two attorneys. Generally speaking, it will wind up costing less.
However, even during a divorce that is mediated, some parties want to have an attorney present just so they can be sure that they are getting what they should be entitled to in terms of the equitable distribution process and any child custody agreements that can be made.
