A divorce can be complicated, overwhelming and driven by emotion. It can be difficult to see eye-to-eye with your spouse as you try to divide assets, calculate Spousal Support, and/or determine child custody arrangements. While some divorcing couples are able to come to mutually-favorable terms on their own, others need the assistance of an unbiased third party during mediation which requires both parties be represented by their own collaboratively trained attorney. Mediation or Collaborative-Mediation can be a great tool for divorcing couples who can’t agree on the terms of their divorce, but don’t want to put their future in the hands of a judge.
Thus, all decisions are made by the spouses with the Mediator acting as peacemaker to keep the discussions constructive and productive. In the mediation process, the couple maintains control over their situation and strives to keep any enmity out of the dispute.
Mediation is the perfect choice for the couple who agrees they don’t want to spend the time or money on Divorce Litigation and enter into the divorce with a level of understanding and agreement on many issues. For parties who wish to remain on good terms and are committed to negotiating in good faith to reach an equitable settlement, mediation may just be the answer.
It’s also important to learn what happens after the divorce mediation is settled. Understand your options and ways to get your life back to some semblance of normalcy.
