End Your Marriage Amicably with Divorce Mediation

Growing in popularity for its effectiveness and flexibility, divorce mediation is a viable option for many couples who are seeking to end their marriage. Divorce can be a difficult process, made more difficult by complicated court proceedings that last longer than is necessary, whereas both parties may want the divorce to end as quickly as possible so they can move on with their lives. Divorce mediation can allow for a timely and cost-effective end to your marriage.

In divorce mediation, you and your spouse will be able to communicate effectively by taking advantage of a process that is more conversation than conflict. Issues can be discussed and resolutions can be decided on with the help of a neutral mediator who can facilitate this kind of atmosphere. If this is the route that you would like to take in dissolving your marriage, we encourage you to get in touch with an attorney at Eiges & Orgel, PLLC today.

What Issues Will Be Decided in Divorce Mediation?

In order for you and your spouse to negotiate the provisions of your marital settlement agreement, a divorce mediator will be needed. You may be wondering why a mediator is required in these situations if the divorce is uncontested. Just because a divorce is uncontested doesn't mean that both parties are going to initially agree on every factor.

Over the course of several mediation sessions, the couple will decide:

  • How time with the children will be split up
  • How the marital property will be divided
  • How the couple’s debt will be divided
  • How much child support will be paid (if any)
  • How much alimony will be paid (if any)

If the couple is unable to agree on any of these factors or come to an amicable resolution, the divorce may become contested—meaning that these issues will need to be decided by a family law judge. For this reason, mediation is only recommended for couples who are willing to compromise and work together during the divorce process.

How Long Does Divorce Mediation Usually Take?

The short answer is: it depends. Each case, and every couple, is different. However, mediation usually takes a fraction of the time it would take to get through a contested divorce. In some cases, adversarial divorce proceedings can take years. Conversely, when a couple is willing to work together during mediation, it may be possible for an attorney to prepare the initial draft of their divorce agreement after three to five sessions. How long it takes is really up to the couple.
