Divorce and separation is the most painful and difficult life change a family may ever experience. Typically, when a couple determines to make this painful transition they resort to hiring lawyers to represent their interests. Many problems arise from following this course of resolution. First, the process can be very expensive. Initially, attorneys assess retainer fees, and begin contractual relationships with their clients for their services, based on hourly rates. These rates can and often fall well above resources available to the average income family. Also, the litigation process has for many continued the trauma in many respects. Litigation is a process where parties attempt to resolve their cases following each parties “best” interests.

Mediation on the other hand is an entirely different process that accomplishes similar goals with a reduction in negative potential results. The costs are much lower than what would be experienced in a litigated divorce, and retainer fees are not standard. The most important difference is that professional mediators empower families to manage their own decision making and determine their own outcomes. Thus, mediation provides a professional forum that enables couples to devise a Memorandum of Agreement, the document that catalogs all of the agreements between the couple as well as meets the fundamental requirements of the divorce
