Mediation & arbitration statistics


​Divorce mediation and arbitration is proven across the board to produce better outcomes than traditional, adversarial proceedings:

  • Mediation results in a settlement agreement in 50% to 80% of cases
  • In a survey, 69% of respondents said they were somewhat to very satisfied with the outcome of their mediation sessions

  • In one study, divorcing couples who used the court system to work out their divorce ended up spending anywhere from 30% to 134% more in legal costs, as compared to mediation or arbitration
  • One study showed that couples who used mediation or arbitration finalized their divorce in up to 50% less time than couples who litigated their cases

Why Capital Mediation & Arbitration? 


In short: we care. Our mediators, arbitrators, and support staff have your best interests at heart. Our three primary goals are:


  1. Facilitating effective communication. Going to court almost guarantees a further break in communication between divorcing spouses. By going the litigation route, you’ll continue to foster bad blood between you and your ex – and you could compromise your relationship with your children. The arbitrators and mediators at Capital seek to keep the lines of communication open between you and your spouse.
  2. Reducing costs. Can you afford hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation costs? Most people cannot shoulder the financial burden of pricey legal fees. Keep your retirement savings. Maintain your children’s college fund. Don’t throw away your hard earned money. Mediation and arbitration services from Capital are overwhelming less expensive than traditional litigation.
  3. Resolving disputes quickly. No one wants his or her divorce to drag on for months and months or even years. Alternative Dispute Resolution aims to end all disputes quickly – with positive outcomes for both parties. Get your life back faster with Capital Mediation & Arbitration.  


One of the most attractive aspects of mediation and arbitration is that proceedings and sessions are 100% confidential, unlike courtroom trials. Capital realizes that the privacy of your family is paramount. We do everything in our power to protect that privacy.
