Pre-Divorce Mediation is one of the newest options available to divorcing spouses. If the spouses cannot agree on the terms of the divorce but do not want to fight through the contested divorce process they should consider Pre-Divorce Mediation. During the Pre-Divorce Mediation session, the spouses meet with an experienced mediator who will work with them to resolve their difference. Once the spouses are in agreement they may then file an uncontested divorce.
By using Pre-Divorce Mediation and filing an uncontested divorce, the spouses generally proceed through the divorce process quicker and save thousands of dollars in legal fees compared to fighting in court. Pre-divorce mediation is not appropriate for all cases so it is important to consult an attorney when evaluating your options.
