Mediation could have several benefits for you, especially if you and your former spouse can be cordial with each other. Mediation also provides both sides with equal power to develop the terms of their divorce, rather than having the courts decide for them. The cost of separation can be reduced through mediation, and the divorce process will often be completed more quickly if agreements are made in mediation. Also, any discussions between both sides and the mediator are confidential, so there will not be any public record of the events.
