FAQ: What are the Benefits?

While the goal of mediation is to produce a win-win resolution, mediation also:

  • Requires significantly less time than litigation.
  • Costs far less (as little as one-tenth of the cost of a litigated dispute).
  • Allows you to control the decisions that affect your life and the lives of those you care about.
  • Benefits family members, neighbors, and co-workers by reducing conflict in ongoing relationships.
  • Is conducted in a private, confidential setting.
  • Avoids public disclosure of financial and personal matters.
  • Promotes communication, enhances problem-solving skills, and encourages continued cooperation.
  • Produces more satisfactory, long-lasting agreements than litigation because the process is voluntary.
