The cost of divorce mediation is much more reasonable than collaborative divorce, which may include fees for several professionals for multiple hours per meeting or a litigated divorce using only divorce attorneys. In mediation, you pay for the time that you use when you use it, pay-as-you-go. We provide a parenting guide and a financial guide to help you make decisions. If you are able to communicate outside of the mediation meetings and make most of these decisions on your own then you will use less of the mediator’s time and keep costs down. The pace of divorce mediation can also be much faster than other methods. Most couples take about two weeks between meetings, but some have chosen to come on a weekly basis and end the process with a divorce agreement in hand in about 6 weeks.
Couples also like working on these major decisions in a more relaxed atmosphere. Just the three of us in a meeting having a conversation. There is no pressure to make a decision on the spot. You can have a discussion about something and develop some options to think about and revisit the topic at the next meeting. People especially like that mediation is confidential and not shared with the court or other outside sources. The mediators at Westfield Mediation, LLC, have the experience and disposition to work with you during a very stressful time in your lives. At Westfield Mediation, our sole focus is on divorce mediation and we bring many years of expertise in this one area to the table. While your divorce process might not be super-fun, we can try to help you make it suck less.
