Guiding Divorce Clients Through Mediation
Most family law disputes, including those involving child custody, child support, and marital property, can be resolved without going to court. Taking matters to court can take a lot of time and money, give you less certainty about the outcome, and add to the stress.
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution in which a neutral third person helps the parties resolve their conflicts. The mediator can act as a facilitator to help the spouses reach their own agreement. Or, the mediator can listen to each side’s arguments and recommend compromise solutions, which the parties do not have to accept.

As family court dockets in Colorado have become busier, there has been a greater focus on divorce mediation. With the help of divorce mediation, spouses may more quickly find a resolution to disagreements and avoid the need for a decision from a judge who doesn’t know the family.
As a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), divorce mediation provides an attractive option for those who prefer to stay out of court. Among the many potential advantages of divorce mediation are:
- Reduced cost: By not going to court, you will not have the expenses of a trial, although you will have to pay the mediator.
- Efficient resolution: Both parties will be heard and the mediator will help resolve differences quickly. Your lawyer will be with you at all mediation sessions to make sure you are fully aware of how a particular decision could affect you and your family.
- Less emotional stress: In mediation, you have more control of the outcome. In court, the judge will decide every issue, while in mediation you have the opportunity to discuss possible options in a calmer environment with less time pressure.
- More control over the results: When you and your spouse play an active role in mediation, you are both more likely to be more satisfied with the results and the results are more likely to meet your needs.
