THE LONG ANSWER FOLLOWS:

 

You will have the assistance of a single detached and neutral mediator, who will discuss the settlement of your divorce or family matter, without undue wasting of time or money on litigation, and your privacy will be protected. In traditional divorce litigation, each lawyer will demand a retainer (up-front money) of from $3000 to $5000 to start the case.  They will lead you down a strenuous, adversarial process; it is possible 7 to 8 times more wasteful and inefficient than mediation.

  • Litigated divorce will take usually between 6 months to 2 years to complete while Mediation will take simply 2 to 3 months.

  • The cost of mediation divorce could be as low as $2000-$4000 while litigated divorce usually is about $10,000 to $20,000. This is money that should be spent on your life and your future.
