What Is Mediation?

Mediation is a process that allows two parties to sit together and resolve a conflict in order to save the costs of a legal battle. Divorces that are mediated are processed faster and are more cost-effective Mediation allows the parties to have their interests and needs met whilst avoiding litigation. Our mediators have a background of law, psychology and negotiation techniques so that emotional and financial negative effects are minimised.

You Don’t Have to Fight: Mediating Your Massachusetts Divorce

Mediation is less costly, less adversarial and quicker than a court battle. It puts the solutions in your hands letting you take ownership and empowering you in the process. However, not all mediators are lawyers. Our certified mediators are also experienced courtroom attorneys and we bring legal knowledge and practical insights to the mediation process that non-attorney mediators do not. Effective solutions come from understanding the law, knowing what a judge would likely do and realizing when and why negotiations break down.

The attorneys at Wright Family Law Group are certified divorce mediators, drawing on over 25 years of combined experience litigating, mediating and settling divorce cases. We conduct mediations throughout Middlesex and Essex Counties.

What Are the Advantages of Divorce Mediation?

Couples who choose mediation to settle their divorce can avoid a costly and protracted court battle. This allows them to save a significant amount of money and usually complete the process much more quickly. Other potential benefits of divorce mediation include:

  • Confidentiality: A mediated divorce stays private and confidential and does not appear in the public court record.
  • Flexibility: Participants have far greater control over the process, allowing them to come up with creative and practical solutions to fit their needs.
  • Amicable Resolution: Divorce mediation occurs in a cooperative rather than combative setting, which allows participants to work together toward a more peaceful solution.
  • Better for Children: Divorce is always hard on children, but it is far less stressful when the parents choose to work together to resolve their differences.
  • Higher Compliance Rate: Mediation empowers participants to develop their own agreement, and because they play a major role in its creation, there is a far greater chance the parties will comply with the final settlement.
