To say the very least, divorce and domestic disputes are emotional roller coasters no matter what the circumstances are. The tension becomes even greater once the court gets involved. Although mediation does not remove the pressure, it can ease the feelings of resentment, abandonment, anxiety, and hostility.
Having trained mediators who help the parties communicate with one another so that they themselves can resolve their disagreements makes the divorce or domestic dispute more tolerable and acceptable. By having an active voice in decisions relating to the division of property and disbursement of assets, the involved parties feel that the mediation process is fairer than what the court may have handed down in terms of a judgment.
