Divorce is a significant and life-altering decision. There are many often painful reasons why individuals decide to divorce, and the emotional toll can be severe. To add to the challenge, the prospect of litigation can be financially taxing on both parties.
Are there any options that can lessen these difficult impacts, at least to some degree?
Fortunately, there are–divorce mediation is one of them. In this post, we will consider what divorce mediation is and the four benefits of choosing this course.
Divorce mediation is a method of resolving disputes between two parties seeking to dissolve their marriage. In mediation, the parties will work with an objective third party (the mediator) to devise a mutually agreeable resolution to the issues. This is usually done through negotiation and compromise.
The mediator may assist you in reaching an agreement on matters like property distribution, child custody, and child support. Mediators do not provide legal advice but instead act as facilitators to assist couples in determining what is best for their circumstances.
In many cases, divorce mediation can help to reduce the stress and expense associated with divorce. While there are other methods of resolving disputes between divorcing spouses, mediation is generally seen as a more satisfactory approach. This is because it enables both parties to work together towards a solution, they feel comfortable with.
