The Cost Benefits of Fort Collins Divorce Mediation

You can save thousands of dollars with divorce mediation

At Mitch Tacy Family Law Attorney & Mediator we strongly recommend that a divorcing couple consider mediation first. Attorney fees and litigation costs can make getting a divorce very expensive. The costs of divorce mediation are dramatically less than that of litigation. The initial fee to retain an experienced litigation attorney in a divorce case ranges from $3,000 to $10,000 and more. When each party retains separate litigation counsel, legal expenses double ($6,000 to $20,000 and more). Couples utilizing the divorce mediation process can anticipate a total (combined) cost in the range of $800 – $3,000. You can save thousands of dollars with divorce mediation and also save on the emotional costs of a traditional divorce. Court battles are traumatic, the psychological repercussions can take years to heal from.

You are a good candidate for Mediated Divorce if:

  • You both agree that the marriage is over.
  • You are both mentally healthy; there is no mental/physical abuse or financial impropriety suspected.
  • You are both open to the process of meditation.
  • You are both able to provide the financial documents necessary to conduct the mediation (Sworn Financial Statements and Mandatory Disclosures).
  • You are both willing to divide your assets and debts in a manner that is fair to both of you. You must have the ability to compromise to reach a settlement.
  • You have the ability and are willing to be great co-parents to your children and put their interest first.
  • Although you may not be getting along, you agree that you will be open to hearing recommendations for a solution to your disagreements from a third party.
