Divorce mediation has many benefits that might be helpful to your family, even if your legal matters are complicated to solve. Divorce mediation is better than going to court if all parties involved are willing to cooperate and compromise to create lasting decisions for the future. Finding common ground rather than fighting each other utilizing divorce mediation allows you and your spouse to create effective resolutions for your family’s future. Attorney Hugh O’Donnell has decades of experience helping couples find common ground and developing practical solutions.

Family law matters such as divorce, child custody, and other issues can be complicated to resolve. Everyone has their agendas and often conflicting sets of ‘best interests.’ Coming to an agreement isn’t always easy for a divorcing couple without a skilled individual managing the conversation. Working with someone experienced in divorce mediation can help you create the most immediate path to ensuring a resolution. Here are some of the key advantages of divorce mediation:
·        Cost-effective
·        Faster resolution
·        Empowerment and control
·        Less adversarial
·        Confidentiality
·        Customized solutions
·        Reduced emotional stress
·        Preservation of relationships.
·        Better compliance with agreements
·        Less impact on children
Is there a right time to utilize divorce mediation? There is certainly no wrong time. Mediation can be used at any point during the divorce process. Each case is different, and it’s challenging to predict the perfect timing to use mediation for your case. But if a couple is willing to try mediation, an experienced mediator can usually bring parties to an agreement.
I began performing divorce and family law mediation several decades ago when it was a rarity, and few were doing it. I have taken and presented many advanced mediation training courses and have earned the respect of the courts and the legal community for my efforts to use mediation to help people. I am proud of my leadership role in bringing mediation benefits to people in Missouri and Kansas.
