The point of entering into a mediation is to help couples resolve those differences and develop solutions.
2. Having a sense of power equality is not necessary during a mediation.
That is the benefit of entering into a mediation. There is much less power struggle present. A communication Coach can help immensely throughout a mediation by assisting and sometimes directing the communication. A coach helps equalize power differences and can be a strong voice when needed.
3. Solutions become mutually beneficial and fair.
One attorney is hired for the legal piece and one communication coach is hired for the solution building piece. All four people work toward the same results that are fair to each person in the couple dyad, typically saves money by staying out of the court battle, and helps the children through the process.
4. The legal system upholds mediation.
In fact, the court system prefers mediation and collaborative divorce over litigation. Amicable resolutions keep people out of court, and is beneficial to the entire family.
5. Anyone can mediate a divorce.
The whole point of mediation is to resolve the differences, find solutions that work for everyone, and to save couples from the extensive costs of litigation. If you are already in agreement about the end of your marriage, then you don't need mediation.
