Legal Representation v. Mediation
“Don’t sacrifice what’s in your best interests just because you don’t think you can afford an advocate”
Divorce Mediation is a good and cost-effective option if you and your spouse are fully open to the process, where you do not suspect that your spouse is hiding assets and in instances where you and your spouse are close to an agreement but just need assistance with resolving a few issues.
However, if you and your spouse cannot compromise and are far apart on the issues or you suspect your spouse is hiding assets, mediation is probably not the best course of action. Retaining an Attorney, who would fight for what’s in your best interest and guide you to make the best decisions for you would be the prudent road to take.
Although some claim that mediation costs less that a traditional divorce, that is not always the case After mediation, the parties are advised to seek independent legal review of the proposed agreement and it is at this point that negotiations might break down because one party ( or both) realizes that they are not getting the best agreement for them. When this happens one party commences legal action, basically starting the process over resulting in wasted time and money.
