In mediation, you and your ex-partner will enter into a dialogue under the guidance of a mediator. The mediator will guide the discussion to ensure a constructive exchange. In addition, the mediator will provide both parties with information on how to approach any given component of the dispute from a legal perspective. You will receive expert advice on your position and will jointly map out each other’s interests. The purpose of mediation is to find a mutual solution for the conflict in such a way that both parties feel heard and their interests are warranted. Mediation plays a major role in the settlement of most divorces these days.

When is mediation suitable?

Mediation is a suitable instrument when both of you would prefer to settle the dispute by mutual consultation without the need to go to court. 

What are the benefits of mediation?

The primary benefits of mediation are: 

- Fast solution: mediation can generally be completed in a matter of a few months or even weeks and sometimes in a single session lasting only a few hours. This also makes mediation much less expensive than legal procedures;
- Preservation of the relationship: mediation enables both of you to express everything. Finding a mutually resolved solution will be a benefit to your future relationship;
- Personal control over the outcome: mediation always results in a tailor-made solution. You make mutual decisions about the contents of your agreement and the resulting contract. You therefore do not leave the decision on how the conflict should be resolved to the judge.
- Focus on non-judicial aspects: the fact that mediation is oriented to tailor-made solutions means that it does not focus exclusively on legal aspects. Due attention is also given to the underlying emotional and practical aspects.
