Why Choose Mediation in a Divorce?
IN a nutshell, Mediation:
Avoids costly litigation
Decisions can be made without the Judges interference
It will reduce stress
It can be settled in a faster time
Confidentiality will be protected where it would not otherwise be in court
A more in-depth look at Mediation:
You will have the assistance of Timothy A. Ciaffoni, a single, detached, neutral and certified mediator, who will discuss the settlement of your divorce or family matter, without undue wasting of time or money on litigation, and your privacy will be protected. Timothy A. Ciaffoni is not acting in the capacity of an attorney, and cannot ever represent either party if the mediation breaks down: however, Mr. Ciaffoni brings his decades of family law experience to the table.
the cost savings of mediation is often many fold where in a traditional divorce litigation, each side will have a lawyer whose retainer (or up-front money) can range from $3,000 to $7,500 to start the case. Often, this will lead you down a strenuous, adversarial process; that may cost tens of thousands of dollars more than an efficient mediation.
Litigated divorce proceeding usually take at least 6 months to complete and it is not uncommon for some divorce actions to last 2 years. Mediation on the other hand, can be completed in as little as 2 to 3 months.
The cost of mediation divorce here is a $2,200 retainer and could be as low as $2200 with most being completed for under $5,000. This savings is money that should be spent on your life and your future.
