Are you considering divorce mediation? If so, there may be a few rumors that you may have heard about the process. Before you decide to start mediation, you should understand why these rumors are not true.
Some people believe that mediation is for people that are afraid to speak up for themselves, that one person will be bullied by the other. This is not true as mediation allows both parties to speak about the issues that are important to them in an environment where both sides are heard and respected. While you might think that this process would make a divorce take even longer, studies show that mediation actually shortens the divorce process.
