Divorcing couples typically spend less than $3800 for everything from start to finish plus court fees, and even less when no minor children are involved. This is very inexpensive compared to using two separate lawyers, who require retainers of no less than $3500 to $5000 from each spouse (or together $7000 to $10,000) just to get started — and according to The Wall Street Journal lawyers usually wind up costing divorcing couples $27,000 or more!
In addition to the substantial cost savings, mediation saves divorcing couples a great deal of time and emotional costs. Mediation typically involves weeks rather than the many months or years divorcing couples spend in dealing with lawyers and the court. Whereas mediation is aimed at reducing hostility, tension, and other emotional costs, using two adversarial lawyers and the court system is sure to increase these emotional costs for everyone including children.
