How mediation can make your divorce smoother

Divorce is not an occasion many people associate with cooperation and negotiation. There are a plethora of pop culture examples of divorcing couples fighting and escalating disagreements. Regardless, approaching proceedings from this perspective is not only possible, but it can be beneficial for both parties.

Couples looking to keep their divorce out of the courtroom can choose to enter mediation. This alternative to litigation brings in a trained professional to assist couples with the settlement and negotiate final terms.

The role of the mediator

The mediator's role is not to take sides or assign blame. They are focused on promoting understanding between parties and addressing the needs and interests of everyone, making sure those needs and interests are heard.

A mediator will facilitate communication between parties and seek to find creative answers to problems that enable couples to reach an agreement together. Through this process, amicable solutions are found and a divorce can be finalized once everyone's need are met.

Benefits of mediation

There are several benefits to divorce mediation, including:

  • Timely finalization
  • Cost-effective resolution
  • Confidentiality
  • Better communication between ex-spouses
  • Reduced stress
  • Increased control over the outcome

Divorce mediation isn't for every couple - at times, there is no way to avoid litigation in a marriage dissolution. But for couples who are seeking an amicable split where both parties are open and willing to the idea, mediation can be a relief to one of life's most stressful events.

If you are interested in seeking divorce mediation, consider working with a family law attorney experienced in guiding couples through the process in a collaborative way.
