Advantages of using mediation in a Michigan divorce

On Behalf of | Sep 8, 2021 | Divorce |

When a Brighton Howell area couple comes to the conclusion that they should get a divorce they have already been through quite a bit. A divorce can be a long and costly process that is tough on everyone. Mediation can be a way for a couple to get a divorce in a less stressful way, helping to make it easier on the couple and their kids.

There are many advantages for a couple to choose mediation for their divorce. These include:

  • Children come first in mediation. For couples with children, divorce can be especially difficult. The privacy and amiability of mediation can help protect the children and the resolution will be in the best interest of all those involved.
  • Less stress. Although a divorce is often stressful, a mediator can help ease the stress by making sure all the details are handled. A mediator will cover every aspect of their client’s case including details they may have never considered. A couple will work together to reach an effective and peaceful solution.
  • Cost effective. Going through mediation is a far more cost-effective option than a traditional litigated divorce.
  • Less formal. Mediation offers a couple a comfortable situation in order to work through the divorce process.
  • Good and effective conversation. One of the greatest benefits of mediation is the ability for a couple to have an effective conversation. Mediation can help turn an unproductive argument into successful negotiation.

A couple who is considering a divorce may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in family law. An attorney can help their client through the divorce process and offer mediation as a way to ensure the process runs more smoothly and everyone’s best interests are protected.
