Mediation clients tell us that the main reason they choose mediation is that the well-being of their children is their first priority. In mediation, children’s needs come first.
In mediation sessions, parents develop the business-like relationship they need to healthily parent their children after divorce. Parents, not judges, decide what the best parenting arrangement is for their children.
Since mediation is quicker than litigation, families get out of the limbo of the divorce process faster, reducing stress on everyone sooner.
Mediation is less costly than other procedures so more money is available to meet children’s and parents’ needs.
College education aspirations of children are also addressed in mediation. Research shows that mediating parents are more likely to choose to contribute to the cost of their children’s college education than litigating parents.
