Benefits of Mediation
Mediation offers several advantages for resolving issues and coming to an agreement. This course of action provides the opportunity for divorcing spouses to choose the issues that require negotiation and come to an agreement outside of court. The process is less costly and less time consuming than litigation. Often, couples can come to an agreement in just a few sessions, rather than spending many months, or even years, litigating a divorce settlement.
Voluntary & Mandatory Mediation
Mediation works best when both parties agree to the process. This method is easiest when both parties agree to the divorce, want to remain on good terms, and are prepared to compromise and negotiate in a civil manner. However, mediation can also be mandated by the court to encourage the divorcing couple to work out their differences without a trial.
Mediation may be used when:
- Both parties agree to try mediation
- A motion is made by one party
- The court orders it
The mediator works with the divorcing couple to resolve differences and help them come to an agreement. It can be helpful to have your own attorney to consult with during the mediation process and to ensure that someone is looking out for your interests. Our mediation attorneys in Birmingham can help you determine if mediation is a good option for your situation and provide the advice you need during mediation.
