What is Mediation?

Mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in which a neutral third-party acts as a middle ground for divorcing couples. In many counties in Georgia, divorcing spouses are required to pursue a “good faith” effort to use mediation prior to pursing a contested divorce. A mediator does not make any decisions on behalf of the spouses, but rather provides useful information and facilitates healthy communication.

A mediator can help couples work through the following issues:

Is Mediation Right for Me?

Not every couple is a good fit for mediation. In order for mediation to be an effective strategy, both spouses must be honest, open, and willing to collaborate towards a mutual agreement. Mediated divorces can be highly desirable in circumstances where spouses will still maintain regular contact after a divorce due to shared children and wish to remain amicable. In this type of arrangement, spouses are kept in control of their own futures and can decide the terms of their separation without court involvement. Most often, mediated divorces can take much less time to complete than a contested divorce and can save couples thousands of dollars in legal fees.
