What Happens If You Don't Agree In Mediation

What Is Divorce Mediation?

Mediation is an alternative method used by couples seeking divorce. This method of divorce is often used in cases where both parties are willing to work together, in order to reach an amicable agreement that suits both of their needs. Divorce mediation will work to cover the final divisions for matters involving property, financial assets, financial debts, and in some cases even custody of a child.


Mediation is a more direct process of divorce, that allows more privacy and freedom for the parties involved. The mediation agreement will be reached between both spouses, while a neutral third party works as a mediator, to ensure that both parties’ needs are being heard and that the agreement reached is mutually beneficial. The mediation process helps to eliminate the need for several back and forth negotiations, allowing for a quicker and more communicative divorce agreement.


In traditional divorces, a judge will listen to what both parties have to say and show, before making the ultimate decision in the terms of their divorce agreement. One of the greatest benefits to choosing mediation as your method for divorce, is that both parties must agree on the terms of the divorce before it is finalized. If either party does not fully agree to the terms of the divorce, they can simply not sign the agreement. This allows for total control for the couple. If they are unable to come to a resolution and sign the agreement, they may need to pursue a litigated divorce in order to finalize it.
