How long does mediation take?
Mediation varies in length depending on the complexity of the issues involved, the readiness of the couple and the willingness of the couple to work together. While it can take as little as one session, the average length of time it takes to reach an agreement is two to four sessions. Each session is typically about two hours. Mediation is time-limited; it does not drag on indefinitely.
With a complete Marital Settlement Agreement, the divorce can be filed and finalized in a matter of weeks instead of months or longer. A divorce by mediation will be less stressful, adversarial and harmful than a litigated divorce case - not only to you but also to your children. You save money, time and emotion.
