child custody mediation

What is the difference between mediation and trial?

Mediation vs. Trial in Child Custody.

trial vs. mediationDivorce and custody disputes end in one of two ways, by agreement or by trial. From the day one spouse decides to file for divorce, the parties are free at any point to settle their claims and disputes through private agreement. Often, such an agreement is reached when both sides realize that a further escalation of their litigation is not worth it, either because the costs involved exceed the envisaged outcome, or because, for example, the spouses hope that private settlement will improve and stabilize their relationship in the interest of their children. While the parties may settle in any way they deem preferred, the most common way divorces and custody disputes are being settled is by mediation.
