When it comes to divorce, most people believe it is often a hotly contested and emotionally overwhelming situation.

If you believe you and your spouse can finalize your divorce in a peaceful manner, our Waldorf divorce attorneys at the Law Office of Robert R. Castro can help you obtain the best outcome possible. Whether you want us to be your mediator or represent you through the process, we can guide you through each step of mediation to ensure you and the other party agree an all terms of your divorce. Let us help you start a new chapter in life.

How Mediation Can Help

Mediation is an informal legal process designed to resolve all conflicts in a divorce. The sessions are led by a mediator, who is a neutral third-party that helps the parties discuss their issues, find agreements, resolve any misunderstandings.

The following are the benefits of mediation compared to court litigation:

  • Less costly – Going through mediation is significantly less expensive than hiring an attorney and allowing a judge to reach your agreement. You must account for attorney fees, court fees, and other costs related to your divorce. In mediation, you only pay the mediator and since the turnaround is quick, you end up paying less in a short period of time.
  • Faster – As we briefly mentioned above, mediation only takes a few weeks at most to resolve since couples have flexibility in terms of scheduling sessions—essentially, whatever works for both parties. On the other hand, the court process can take years to reach an agreement since you must adhere to the court schedule and times when both sides and their lawyers must meet.
  • More private – Personal information and even ugly allegations can be leaked to the public when a couple goes through court litigation. Mediation is a confidential process since sessions are only hosted by the mediator.
  • More control – Couples have all the power to determine each term of their divorce agreement, which means both parties can ultimately win. By contrast, the judge determines a winner and a loser.
  • Preserves relationships – If you have children, learning how to effectively communicate and work together to reach a final agreement can help you become better co-parents. Just because the marriage is over doesn’t mean you will stop becoming parents. Mediation can help you strengthen your relationship to raise your kids.
