Mediation v. Litigation

Many clients ask us if they should just try mediation before jumping into a law suit over their divorce. The answer to this question is different for everyone. Depending on your circumstances, it might make more sense to try mediation early on in the process to help you prevent the time and money associated with fighting in court. On the other hand, many cases cannot be resolved in mediation for one reason or another, for those cases, litigation is really the only other option. This article explores the benefits of both mediation and litigation. For detailed information about the specifics of your case, or to speak with an attorney or mediator at our office, call us today at 801.475.0991.

The Benefits of Mediation in Utah

There are many benefits to mediation in Utah. Chief among these benefits is the enormous savings in time and money. In fact, many clients choose to hire us as divorce mediators in Utah so they can save the time, money, and ultimately the headache and sorrow that comes along with drawn out court battles. Another substantial benefit is the ability to maintain some type of working relationship for the future. This can be especially important in cases involving children and custody. The truth is, if you have kids together, you are going to have to continue to be a part of each others lives to some extent. Mediation allows divorcing couples to settle on ground rules to better help them move forward and co parent their children.
