Article by Brian Connor James

People who were considering getting a divorce last year but held off because of the holidays, will most likely take that step in the first six months of this year. Statistics indicate that with each passing year, the number of people getting divorced is rising. And each year, the children are the ones who suffer as their parents bitterly fight over every issue from money to visitation.

Can anything be done to make getting divorced an easier situation for all the parties involved? There is an answer, and it is mediation.

Exactly, what is mediation? Unfortunately, mediation is not very well known to the people who need it the most. However, mediation is gaining popularity due to its potential advantages over fighting it out in court. A few of these advantages are:

! Keeping the children's best interests at the forefront.

! Mediation cost less and takes less time than working your way through the court system for years.

! It allows for the parties to be in charge of their divorce.

! It fosters communication for the purpose of agreements.

"Mediation also has other advantages," says Brian James, president of C.E.L. & Associates, a certified mediator who specializes in pre and post divorce issues. " The payer of child support and/or maintenance is more likely to make monthly payments if agreed upon during mediation. Plus, you will spend less time in the court system."

Because a judge's calendar is so full, he or she has little time to really get to know the people getting divorced. A mediator takes the time to get to know the parties involved.
