What are the advantages of using mediation to settle a divorce case?

Mediation is generally faster and cheaper than litigation, mediation can typically be completed in a couple of weeks or a month. Litigation on the other hand typically takes months or even a year or more. Mediation can typically be completed far cheaper than litigation; on the high side mediation could cost around $1,500, on the low side mediation could cost around $500. The difference in cost depends on the issues mediated and the number of sessions. Mediation also allows the parties to fashion an agreement that is unique to them and takes into account their family dynamic, such an outcome may not be available through litigation.
