What is the role of a divorce mediator? The simple answer is that the role of a divorce mediator is to help you and the spouse you are divorcing reach agreement about the terms of your divorce in a timely and less expensive way. We accomplish these goals by providing you with individual attention that almost always surpasses what lawyers conducting divorce cases in the traditional court systems can provide to divorcing couples. AMS Mediation helps you focus not just on the past, but encourages you to live in the present and look to the future. The role of a divorce mediator is to support you, your divorcing partner, your children, and other family members who will be affected by your divorce.

Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Couples who proceed through the court system to finalize their divorces often find that the pace of the process is slow and conflict grows. Furthermore, the cost to them is greater because lawyers are almost always involved. And because court calendars are always so full, divorcing couples often find that their cases move excruciatingly slowly and at the mercy of the court’s calendar. When you work with a divorce mediator, and this is certainly true when you work with AMS Mediation, you will find that we work with you on an individual basis and do all we can to help you at a pace that helps you the most.

Increasingly, courts are recommending that couples work with mediators to avoid the slowness that occurs in court-based divorce cases. Divorce mediators are trained to reduce conflict, which has potentially immediate benefits for you, if your relationship is characterized by conflict. No mediator can promise to eliminate conflict altogether, but the techniques we employ are effective at helping you and your spouse recognize the benefits of working through the conflict in more constructive ways. This is especially true when children are involved. They are the immediate beneficiaries of your reduction of conflict.
