A recent study of divorced couples showed that those who opted for
mediation, rather than a divorce trial, were more satisfied with the end results
of their divorce.
Of the respondents, 69% said that they were somewhat to very satisfied
with the results of their divorce; just 47% of those who were identified
as "adversarial" could claim satisfaction with the end results.
Several issues were included in this survey, with a majority of them leaning
more towards satisfaction with a mediator versus attorneys. These include:
satisfaction with spousal support arrangements, the ability of the individual
to help clients deal with anger, being understanding of children's
needs and creativity of the individual in resolving difficult issues.
