  • What is divorce mediation?
    Divorce mediation is a more informal way to negotiate a divorce agreement. Rather than a traditional divorce that may be resolved by a judge in a courtroom, you can stay in control of your family’s future by settling out of court. With the help of a divorce mediator, you and your spouse can communicate about all aspects of your divorce in a comfortable, non-contentious environment.
  • Is divorce mediation right for me?
    We recognize that every marital relationship has unique aspects, and every family has a unique dynamic. There are so many benefits to taking a more dignified approach to divorce, but there are some situations where divorce mediation may not work or is not recommended. Factors like young children, hidden assets, or refusal to cooperate can make the mediation process difficult.
  • How long does mediation take?
    It is entirely in your control to determine how long your mediation process takes. Though the timeline can differ on a case-by-case basis, the general timeframe you may be looking at could be anywhere from six weeks to six months. We at Alternative Divorce Solutions can say that on average, our cases last less than 60 days! This is exceptionally fast when compared to traditional courtroom cases, which can last years with no end in sight.
  • Can we save money by mediating?
    Absolutely. With a drawn out courtroom battle comes the extensive attorney’s fees, courtroom fees, and other expenses involved with a lawsuit. Alternative Divorce Solutions offers divorce mediation services at an affordable flat rate, which includes all of your filing fees, mediation appointments, communications, and paperwork preparation.
  • How does the mediation process work?
    We understand just how overwhelming divorce can be. We streamlined our mediation process to ensure swift resolutions without compromising quality of results. From the initial consultation to your various mediation sessions, and all the way to signing the final documents, we will be empowering you every step of the way.
  • How can a mediator help me?
    We are committed to making the upcoming process as easy as possible, especially as your family faces an incredibly emotional time. Our mediator is a completely neutral party that can help guide you through the mediation process. Because we are removed from the conflict, we can often help you reach solutions that you may not have reached on your own.

Why Is Mediation the Preferred Method for Separating Couples?

When it comes to something as personal and impactful as a divorce, ensuring that your voice is heard and reflected in the final agreement is critically important. Mediation puts the decision-making power in the hands of the people it impacts the most, rather than in the hands of a judge with a limited window into the complexities of a family’s needs. It also gives any children involved an opportunity to see that their parents are willing and able to be civil and find compromises to do what is best for them.
