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

By Laura M. Urbik Kern

Number one, cost. It is extremely expensive to litigate in these times. Our system is set up for lawyers – not for people. We have to spend a lot of time waiting that the client is paying for. In mediation, you are involved; you are active and you are trying to get your case settled in the most efficient manner with the least amount of pain. You need to be able to work on compromise, which will be a skill you'll need in the future if you have children.
