About Divorce Mediation Group
Open, cooperative, constructive, professional
It is a more positive personal experience for the divorcing individuals than the adversarial divorce process. Mediation is a cooperative exercise in responsible problem solving that calls upon the best attributes of each partner to build an agreement rather than engage in needless litigation.
Divorce Mediation results in a lower rate of relitigation. Mediated settlements are more comprehensive and cooperative in nature, producing a much higher rate of compliance by both parties, and a lower rate of expensive relitigation.

Divorce Mediation is a much less stressful emotional experience than the traditional divorce process. Working together with a skilled mediator in a negotiation process results in much less animosity and ill will than the protracted confrontation that may occur between adversarial lawyers and their clients. The shortened time duration of the process as well as the considerably lower cost of mediation, also contribute to a lower level of emotional stress.
