We seek to create a gentle environment for an unkind situation.
In mediation, an unbiased third party assists spouses to identify issues in their marriage and, if possible, create solutions that work for both. This mediator can also provide information regarding the law — statutes and court decisions — and help the couple understand what can happen if a divorce has to be decided in court. There are numerous practical benefits to mediation:
Confidential: Mediation is private; there’ll be no public record of your business.
Control: What happens is up to you and your spouse, not the judge.
Cost: Mediation is less expensive than court.
Fairness: You and your spouse decide, not a judge who’s never met you.
Flexibility: If you feel you need one, getting a lawyer’s advice is still an option.
Resolution: Mediation can improve communication between spouses, which means reduced future conflict.
Settlement: Most mediations end in agreement on all issues; in court, if you can’t agree, the judge can simply impose a solution.
Divorce Solutions’ Denver Center should be your first call if you and your spouse are contemplating separation or divorce. To start the process, or just to get more information about how we can help, use this contact form.
We’ve all seen it on television: Two spouses face off in court — accusations, threats, lawyers’ tricks, and a result nobody likes. It’s great drama, but bad justice.
Divorce mediation can make it simple and positive. When spouses are unhappy, it affects them, their children and the extended families and friends who now have to “choose sides”. When spouses confront their problems in a mature, solution-oriented approach, everybody wins because the problems get solved. No using children as weapons, no fighting over trivialities just to get “the win”, no digging up dirt on the spouse to make that person look bad in court.
By its nature, court is adversarial. By its nature, mediation is cooperative.
When you choose mediation, you take nothing off the table — you can always go back to traditional court action, if necessary.
