What it takes to mediate
Divorce is a highly charged experience that can entail a complex mix of emotions. And the restructuring of family dynamics can lead to isolation and intense feelings of loss. By virtue of its adversarial nature, the legal process can exacerbate these emotional difficulties. But mediation offers a quicker alternative to traditional litigation, while also encouraging open dialogue, confidentiality, and cost-efficiency. The less antagonistic nature of mediation can also help reduce the emotional toll of a divorce, leaving both parties more comfortable with the outcome.
