There are innumerable benefits to using a mediation process for your divorce or family separation case. It is far less expensive than a litigated case due to all the discovery, court processes, interventions, and legal fees. It does a better job of protecting the privacy of you and your children from the invasion of scrutiny that comes along with a litigated separation. Overall from initial control over the timeline to the level of participation, to the amount of compliance from those involved, mediation has the upper hand when it comes to being an effective way to settle a legal matter. It just takes a little motivation to want it to be easy on those involved.
Mediation is the best way to settle such a wide range of legal issues without all the drama, invasion of privacy, and personal attacks that can come up in court. Mediation can be faster, easier, and less expensive than going to court, so if meditation is an option, S. DeBoer will always advocate for it. If a couple is interested in saving money and knows they can compromise on things to reach an agreement, mediation is an effective way to resolve issues at a lower cost in both time and money.
