Canada has the 29th highest divorce rate out of 87 countries. Even though everyone gets separated for different reasons, getting separated can be messy and complicated. 

The benefits of mediation mean that children are not affected by the stress of the experience, and you come to an agreement quickly. There are several responsibilities of mediators that can help your separation run smoothly.

Here are some of the key benefits of mediation and how mediation works. 

Benefits of Mediation 

One of the main benefits of mediation is that it saves you time and money. 

Mediation is there to speed up the stages of separation so you can have the documents finalized as quickly as possible.

There's less back and forth. The mediator considers all the information and streamlines the meetings so they are helpful.

You can avoid paying high legal fees for miscommunication.

Set a Good Foundation for the Future

Separating assets and delegating child custody can be stressful for both parents. It's crucial that you use a mediator to make the process efficient and to provide a good foundation for the future. 

Hiring a mediator prevents arguments from escalating and ensures that the main priorities are heard by both spouses. 

Mediation typically takes place in a private setting. This makes it easier for clients to open up about issues and discuss them in confidentiality. The option of being with a third party makes partners feel more comfortable.

Separation can be an emotional experience, so it's important to feel at ease. Working with a mediator allows you to navigate the situation without feeling overwhelmed.

Privacy and Comfort 

Separations are private affairs, and it's essential that you have a mediator there to voice your concerns.

Before you take further proceedings like filing with the court, mediation can help you get the desired agreement without the extra hassle, time off work to attend court and the extra costs.

Sitting with a mediator is less overwhelming than going to court, making it ideal for people worried about privacy. It's also possible to explore different outcomes through mediation.

This way, you can avoid the stress of your children experiencing court or getting impacted by the separation.
