Mediation is a choice. Mediation is an alternative to divorce litigation. A neutral third party will assist you in crafting a divorce judgement which works for you.
It is YOUR choice. Mediation empowers you to take control of the dissolution of your marriage. Mediation is a better economic alternative to divorce litigation. In mediation, you decide, and you accept the settlement terms you created through mediation. A good mediator will help you focus on an interest-based approach to dissolution instead of a position-based approach. Mediating agreements tend to be abided with more than litigation settlements, or judicial decrees.
Why mediation? It simply works for you.
