Coming to a settlement is the best and by far most common way to complete a divorce. It greatly increases parties’ satisfaction with the final terms of divorce because the parties choose the reasonable terms themselves, and coming to an early settlement is the best way to save money and time on a divorce.

Most divorcing couples are able to reach a settlement, but it can be difficult to come to an agreement on all the terms of their divorce without the help of an objective facilitator. A mediator serves as an experienced, neutral guide for couples who need help identifying issues and crafting resolutions for themselves and their families. This episode of the podcast Susan answers frequently asked questions about this type of alternative dispute resolution.
