Manhattan Divorce Mediation Lawyer Discusses How Divorce Mediation Is Less Stressful Than Litigation

Getting a divorce is extremely stressful. You wish you could get away with it in a day or so. It affects your job, your friends and even your own personal time. It even affects how you view long term relationships in general. It stirs every emotion in your system and it crushes you.

You then come to the reality that it is time to take action and have to determine the best course of action; litigation or mediation.

Manhattan divorce mediation lawyer Sabra Sasson discusses 5 points why divorce mediation is less stressful than litigation.                                                                                                          

  1. Divorce mediations are typically less costly than litigation. If you are worrying about finances, it is best to consider mediation because you will save not only money but time as well. You need not engage separate lawyers for divorce as a divorce attorney-mediator is enough to guide you through the entire process.

 

  1. Court hearings are generally public proceedings. With the exception of some sensitive issues involving abuse and minor children, court proceedings are usually held in public. You will have to recount some emotional and sensitive issues in your family in the court room where there will be unfamiliar people. With divorce mediation, you are assured that the mediations are done in private with only the spouses and a professional Manhattan divorce attorney-mediator present. He or she will assure confidentiality of the mediations. 

 

  1. Litigation takes time. Before a case is set for hearing, divorce lawyers have to prepare pleadings and motions that take time to prepare and present. Decisions by the Court on those pleadings and motions likewise take time before being handed down.  

 

  1. Hearing dates are set by the court and you have no control over the schedules. With divorce mediation, you can schedule mediation sessions at dates and times that are convenient for you, rather than taking time off from work to attend court hearings and conferences.

 

  1. Adversarial proceedings in court become stressful because parties are often hostile to each other. In court, lawyers often show the other party in a bad light to make a point. Making decisions from a place of belief that the other is “bad” or “wrong” is not likely to result in a favorable outcome particularly where young children are involved. With divorce mediations, couples are encouraged to cooperate and share information to reach a mutually beneficial decisions.

If you are concerned with finances, the time and effort involved in getting a divorce, and the outcome of your divorce, you should consider divorce mediation where you can have more control over these. For these reasons, we are seeing an increase in the number of couples who are choosing mediation rather than litigation in court.
