Making the decision to get a divorce is already stressful and emotionally draining before lawyers get involved and the case is brought to litigation. For couples seeking to avoid these kinds of added stressors, divorce mediation may be an option.
What Is Divorce Mediation?
Mediation is the process by which parties work to resolve the pertinent issues in a divorce and create an agreement which is beneficial for everyone involved. No litigation is needed if the parties are able to come to an agreement on all aspects of the divorce. You have the control over the mediation, and effective communication will lead to the best possible outcome for your divorce.
During the process, a highly trained, experienced mediator is present to help facilitate the discussions and assist with peace-keeping. The mediator is a neutral third party who has extensive knowledge of the law and is able to draft the necessary paperwork to push the divorce through the legal avenues to be finalized once an agreement has been reached.
Is Divorce Mediation Right for My Situation?
There are many advantages to divorce mediation rather than the standard divorce proceedings. Rather than having individual lawyers battling the case in court, mediation is more cost-effective (especially if you and your spouse are willing to communicate), quicker, and provides you with more control.
While the mediator is there to keep the mediation moving forward in a positive direction, he/she is not controlling the discussion. You and your spouse decide what is fair for both of you rather than having a judge force a decision on you. Being able to come to an agreement with your spouse will allow you both to move on with your lives more quickly and with less animosity toward one another.
All mediations are confidential and private, so you never have to worry about talking openly and honestly with your spouse or the mediator. The more honest you are, the better off you will be in the mediation.
