Divorce Mediation vs. Traditional Divorce
No divorce process is completely stress free, but if you choose mediation to settle your divorce case, you
could save on time, stress, and money. While divorce mediation is not as common as traditional divorce
litigation, there are many advantages to choosing divorce mediation that can benefit you, your spouse
and your children.
What is mediation, and how is it different from typical divorce through the court system?
Mediation divorce is the most cost effective way to manage divorce proceedings. The divorcing couple
meets with a mediator — a third-person party acts as a go-between to resolve difficult custody,

and your estranged spouse make the final agreement, and you are not bound by the word or a judge or
similar arbiter. Mediation is the method that helps you to create the ideal post-divorce scenario for your
What is the difference in cost?
Traditional divorce proceedings involve litigation and court proceedings. Some more complex cases go
to full trial. Traditional divorce takes longer, and it can be significantly more expensive. A
straightforward mediation costs as low as $10,000 and can go up depending on your assets and the
number of children involved. Meanwhile, traditional divorces, complete with court fees, retainers,
motions, and discoveries, can cost as much as $40,000 for just basic litigation and uncontested rulings.
For many couples, mediation is sufficient for the needs of the family. To understand how divorce
