Mediation Can Provide Significant Financial Savings
If you’ve decided that you will proceed with divorcing your spouse, one of your first steps will need to be determining the method you will use to proceed with divorce. If saving money is one of your primary goals (and it should be), mediation could be the best option for you.
Divorce mediation involves spouses meeting with a third-party mediator who helps facilitate discussions about the issues of the divorce and works with the couple to find agreeable solutions. One of the biggest benefits of this method of divorce is that it saves a significant amount of money due to lower court and attorney fees, thanks in large part to the efficiency of the process and the lesser reliance on attorneys and other court officials to get through the process.
Here are just a few examples of some of the ways in which mediation can save you money.
Fees for a mediator will generally cost quite a bit less than fees for an attorney in another type of divorce.
If you choose to retain an attorney, you will not have to spend as much on their services as you would for other methods of divorce.
You and your spouse will be able to split the fees for the mediator to make it even more affordable.
The process doesn’t take as long as an extended courtroom trial, meaning you save quite a bit of money due to its efficiency.
Because you have more control over the outcome of mediation versus other types of divorce, you will be able to avoid taking potentially heavy losses.
