When divorced, there is a division of assets such as property, savings, and
anything of substantial monetary value, and also a division of liabilities or debt.
The average person remarries three years after a divorce.
Attorneys typically have a vested interest you going through with the
divorce. If you and your spouse reconcile the lawyer can lose money. Mediators
on the other hand usually don't have such an interest in the brake up of the
marriage. In most cases, their pay is not directly affected by a reconciliation.
