The benefits of divorce mediation are many. Typically, this process involves issues of marital property, spousal support and alimony, child custody, retirement asset transfers, and real estate and business valuation. But not every case involves all these issues. While most cases include property distribution and child support, the complexity of the case may warrant a longer mediation session. For example, if a couple has already worked out most of the major issues, mediation may only be necessary to resolve one sticking point.
