Less Stressful Divorce ProcessIf you are contemplating divorce, then one thing that you know for sure is that the decision is not made lightly, and the process is stressful. While there is no way to take away all of the stress of the process, the team at AMS Mediation offers a way to minimize the stress and move you toward resolution more quickly. Divorce mediation is an alternative dispute resolution strategy to settle the terms of your divorce without having to go through the traditional court process with attorneys and a judge rendering decision. Here are 5 ways divorce mediation can reduce the stress of the divorce process:

1. Less of a financial burden: Divorce mediation costs between two and ten times less than litigation. It can be extremely stressful to separate your finances and support two households essentially on the same income level. The costs for mediation allow you to navigate the divorce process without adding to that financial burden.

2. Faster resolution: Mediation can also resolve your divorce case in a fraction of time of a court case. You do not have to coordinate the schedules of your lawyer(s), judge and instead find times that work well for you. You can expect mediation to take three or four 2-hour mediation sessions to complete. Finding resolution more quickly dramatically reduces the stress of divorce.

3. Flexible scheduling: You can schedule the mediation sessions at the time of day and day of the week that works best for you and your mediator. Often this flexibility with scheduling reduces overall stress and empowers you to find times when you are ready to meet and are in the best possible headspace for the session.

4. Virtual mediation sessions: AMS Mediation has implemented virtual mediation sessions so that our clients can complete the divorce process from the comfort of your own home. We have found that this additional flexibility improves the success of the mediation process.

5. Confidential: When you settle your divorce using mediation instead of in a courtroom, you do not have to worry about sharing your most intimate details in front of a judge, attorneys and other court attendants. Your mediation process is entirely confidential.

AMS Mediation understands how stressful the idea of divorce can be for your entire family. So, we work hard to offer options for the process that decrease the stress so that you can think clearly, make sound decisions and move forward with your life.
