  3. First and foremost mediation is about protecting the interests of the children.
  4.  Mediation reduces future conflict by improving communication and problem solving skills.
  5. It’s less costly and much less formal than court.
  6. It’s a private process. Unlike court, no one has a right to know anything you don’t want to reveal.
