Towson Divorce Lawyers Share Commonly Asked Questions about Divorce Mediation

Because of its easy and non-combative nature, divorce mediation is becoming a more and more popular option for spouses considering divorce. But many people still have questions about mediation and whether it’s right for them.

Listed below are some commonly asked questions about divorce mediation and their answers:

Why choose mediation? Mediation promotes healthy communication and cooperation between spouses. The process is intended to help spouses decide on the terms of their divorce in a manner that is amicable, cheaper and quicker than a traditional divorce.

How long does it take? There is no set duration of time for divorce mediation, but on average it takes about three to ten sessions before an agreement can be finalized. It usually takes much less time than a litigated divorce, which can go on for years.

How long are sessions? Sessions generally last between one and three hours.

What’s the cost? You are charged on an hourly basis. Prices vary per mediator.

What if I don’t like the decisions being made? You are always free to terminate divorce mediation. Unlike a judge, mediators do not have the power to make decisions about your life without your consent.

Is divorce mediation for everyone? No, you and your spouse must be willing to work together to reach a compromise. If you are not on speaking terms or cannot be in the same room together, mediation may not be right for you.
