Couples going through divorce tend to have plenty of stress in their lives, as stress generally goes hand in hand with divorce. Divorce mediation is a viable option for settling the terms of a divorce that more and more couples are choosing in large part because it can save you both time and money. AMS Mediation offers comprehensive mediation services to couples during and after a divorce and is committed to providing our clients with the time, care, and professional expertise to help you come through your divorce with less stress and greater readiness to move on to the next chapter in your life.

Benefits of Divorce Mediation

The court-based divorce process for settling divorce is used by many. In fact, it is absolutely necessary for extremely complicated divorce circumstances involving large amounts of money and/or property, as well as other less predictable/universal complications. But the reality for most couples who are considering divorce is that the court-based systems are not set up for the specific needs of their divorce. More and more, judges and other court officials recommend divorce mediation as an alternative for divorce in the courts because of the difficulty of scheduling divorce proceedings and the many other benefits of divorce mediation.

The vast majority of couples who seek divorce do not have the financial complications or severity of interpersonal conflict with their spouses that require resolution by a court. Another reality for most couples is that they do not have the ability to pay the huge fees that most lawyers charge when representing us in court proceedings. Those are compelling reasons to seek AMS Mediation—the cost to you is  much less than it would be if you were to go through the court system and it is much easier to get on our schedule.

Partnering with AMS Mediation to settle your divorce is $4000 (including fees and legal drafting costs). A typical divorce via the court system can cost up to $15,000. You can resolve all aspects of your divorce including division of property and child support in a matter of 6-8 hours of mediation over the course of 6-8 weeks. A court battle can take many months to complete. Mediation also can help reduce overall conflict in your family both during and after a divorce.

AMS Mediation is a divorce mediator who has developed the skills necessary to reduce conflict and maximize the good things that define your relationship. When you work with our team, you give yourself the opportunity to emerge from the divorce process with less anger, resentment, and ill-will toward your former spouse. The absence, or at least the diminution, of such emotional weight gives you the opportunity to move on to the next chapter in your life with greater ease.
