The advantages of mediation in a high asset divorce

Contrary to popular belief, a marital breakup doesn’t have to be contentious and full of conflict. In a high-asset divorce, property and asset division can get complicated. For many Kansas spouses in this situation, mediation is a better option than a contested litigation. Divorce mediation is less expensive, will take less time and give the couple more privacy than going to court. Here are a few more advantages of high asset divorce mediation.

Cost

In mediation, couples use a mediator to help with property divisions and reach an amicable solution to the divorce. In most cases, the mediation proceedings are simpler and much smoother than divorce litigation. On average, the cost of mediation is about 40% to 60% less expensive than taking the divorce to court.

Less Stress

Divorce is stressful enough as it is, but throw in court appearances, attorney meetings and conflict and the experience can be borderline traumatic. Divorce mediation is far less stressful than litigation for all parties involved. The whole premise behind mediation is cooperation and an amicable solution.

Privacy

One of the great benefits of mediation is that the process is completely confidential and private. The mediator can even handle all the paperwork such as document signing and filing. The privacy of all parties is ensured. Most spouses who undergo mediation never need to show up in court.

It goes without saying that a divorce can be extremely stressful and challenging. For many spouses in Kansas, mediation is a great option and makes the divorce process less expensive, less stressful and more comfortable for all parties involved. Those who have questions about any aspect of divorce may want to consider discussing the matter with a knowledgeable family law attorney.
