The successful author, Jane Green explained why mediation made sense for her in her divorce action in a brief 50 words:
“I am divorced, and one of the things I am tremendously grateful for is that my ex-husband and I made a decision to go through mediation. I knew a trial would drag on for years, would cost me everything, but worse, would be devastating for our four small children.”
Mediate don’t litigate. Especially if you have children.
