Mediation and Arbitration

Mediation is quickly becoming a reliable resolution method for couples regarding family matters, including divorce. Many counties in Georgia now require a “good faith” effort through mediation before a court will look at a case. Because mediation is less costly and adversarial, it found to be a prudent and beneficial alternative to traditional litigated divorce.

Studies have shown that mediated separations yield more positive results for the children of the divorce. The focus of a mediation is not on who is right or wrong, or who wins or loses, rather to resolve differences in a less argumentative and adversarial fashion. When used sensibly, mediation allows for the divorcing couples to find realistic solutions to the economic and everyday issues that the family faces, in the most supportive atmosphere possible. The emotional toll and psychological rift of the divorce by itself is an immense burden. Impartial mediators are cost-effective, practical alternatives to the traditional divorce process.
