Is Mediation Cheaper Than Using Lawyers to Handle a Divorce?
Yes, mediation is usually cheaper than using lawyers to handle a divorce. This is because typical family law attorneys approach the case from an adversarial position, meaning that the two parties are at odds with each other. The more issues that the couple cannot agree on, the more time and expense that is typically involved in the case. Each party is responsible for his or her own share of legal expenses. Mediation is a collaborative effort that focuses on meeting the needs of all members of the family. The parties can split the costs of mediation between each other. If the parties reach a decision in mediation, they can avoid additional litigation expenses and simply ask the judge to approve their agreement, which is less costly than having multiple adversarial court hearings.
