When a couple in Massachusetts feels as though their marriage is coming to a close, it may be time to look into their options for divorce. One of the options that has become increasingly popular over time is divorce through mediation. Mediation is a process by which the couple getting divorced will sit with their attorneys and a neutral third party to work through any outstanding marital issues that have to be resolved before the divorce can be finalized. The reason that mediation is becoming so popular is because there are a number of benefits associated with this type of divorce.
Some of the many benefits that a couple may reap from the mediation process include the following:
- The couple will have more control over the divorce than they would if it was litigated. The couple can make decisions for themselves instead of having a judge decide on their behalf.
- Mediated divorces often take less time than other methods of divorce because the couple doesn’t have to rely on court dates and can work around their own schedule.
- Mediation is often a cheaper option than other methods of divorce.
- The couple often walks away with a better relationship than they had before the divorce because they can work through their problems using communication skills.
