Three reasons why you should consider mediating your divorce:
The Court Rules make it mandatory to consider mediation.
The introduction of Rule 41A to the High Court Rules compels litigants to consider mediation as an option to avoid litigation. If a party does not want to mediate, they must give an explanation to the Court as to why not.
Save time and money.
Contested divorce matters usually span over several months or even years, and cost tens of thousands of Rands. Mediation is low-cost, low-risk, and highly effective. In contested divorces the parties each have to pay their own attorney, while the cost of a mediator is usually shared, making it even more cost effective.
Mediation is focused on problem-solving rather than blame-shifting.
Mediation is focussed on the realistic, and reasonable needs of the parties. Where Court litigation inevitably leads to a winner / loser scenario, mediation assists the parties to find real, practical solutions collaboratively.
