Divorce is a difficult and emotional process. At Diggs & Sadler, we understand the complexities involved and are committed to providing a compassionate and effective approach to help our clients navigate through these challenging times. One such approach that we often recommend is divorce mediation.

Understanding Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is a voluntary, out-of-court process in which spouses meet with a neutral third party, known as a mediator, to identify issues of dispute and work towards a mutually acceptable agreement. It is a collaborative process in which divorcing couples set the timing and outcome, allowing the process to be less adversarial and more empowering.

This method of dispute resolution is becoming more prevalent today due to its numerous benefits. During mediation, both parties and their respective attorneys meet with an impartial mediator who facilitates a discussion of all relevant issues.

The Process of Divorce Mediation

The process begins with an introduction to divorce mediation. Before the first mediation session gets underway, the mediator performs an intake of the couple's information. This allows the mediator to understand the unique dynamics and issues at play in your situation.

Once the process has started, the mediator will guide the couple through a series of stages. These stages allow for open communication, negotiation, and, ultimately, the drafting of a divorce settlement agreementThe mediator is there to ensure that both parties have an equal say and that all decisions are reached mutually.

Advantages of Divorce Mediation

One of the key advantages of mediation is that it typically leads to less conflict and stress compared to traditional litigation. By promoting open communication and cooperation, mediation can help preserve relationships and make the transition easier for everyone involved, especially children.

Furthermore, divorce mediation gives the couple control over the timing and outcome of their divorce. In contrast, in a traditional court setting, these decisions are often left to the judge. Mediation also tends to be more cost-effective and quicker than litigation, making it a preferred choice for many couples.
