For couples concerned about financial issues -- that is most of us -- divorce mediation gets rid of the high legal bills, and offers an opportunity to come up with creative solutions to make post-divorce budgets work. Divorce mediation offers significant savings because couples work together with one professional to resolve the issues. In mediation, we focus on budgeting and dividing assets and debts so that each person leaves the marriage with enough money to support him/herself and the children. Mediation is much less expensive than battling it out in court – saving you tens of thousands of dollars.
Difficult economic times should not mean that you have to stay in difficult relationships. Divorce mediation is the cost-effective way to figure out how to split up. Couples have said that even though they had a smaller budget post-divorce, they were happier than staying in a miserable marriage. Mediation provides emotional AND economic relief at a time when everyone needs some.
