Mediation is a time- and money-sparing strategy for solving disputes. It maintains peace for family-owned-business conflicts, for arguments between neighbors, for inheritance challenges.
Mediation conflicts issues can be as small as which daughter is entitled to grandma’s diamond ring or as large as a multi-million dollar building encroaching on a corner of someone else’s land.
Mediation is well known for its benefits in divorce. Many studies have shown that divorce mediation yields more satisfaction with the divorce process and outcome, as well as a better-post divorce relationship with the ex-spouse.
When children are involved, mediation really shines. Children report their needs are better met through mediation than litigation. Parents cooperate more and are more likely to honor terms of the parenting agreement, since each parent had an equal share in setting the terms.
Mediation is more effective, faster, and much cheaper than litigation. A 2005 issue of Money magazine reports a mediated divorce costs between $3000 and $10,000, compared to an adversarial divorce, which averages about $35,000. If court is involved, add another $20,000 to $50,000.
