Although many of us often think of long and drawn-out courtroom battles when we think of divorce, there are other options available for spouses who wish to peacefully dissolve their marriage, such as mediation. Unlike litigation, divorce mediation allows spouses to unlink their lives without having to go to court. If you have children, this less contentious process will help you keep the peace, so you can move forward and raise your children as a team.
Why You Should Consider Mediation
Making the decision to end your marriage is hard enough, so choosing a method that gives you the opportunity to dissolve it more amicably is something you should consider. If you have concerns about how effective negotiations may be, keep in mind that an unbiased mediator will facilitate these sessions and help keep you on track without specifically advocating for either party. Therefore, if you veer off track at any point, your mediator will ensure you stay focused.
Moreover, since you will stay out of court during this process, it will go a lot faster, resulting in fewer legal fees. Not only is it less expensive and more convenient, but mediation will also allow you to keep the details of your split private.
Here are some additional benefits of choosing mediation:
- You are more likely to be satisfied with the outcome since you will negotiate the terms of your decree.
- It is often a far less stressful experience, which is beneficial for your children as well.
- If you cannot agree on everything and end up going to court, having reached a resolution on some key issues will still speed up the process.
Divorce does not have to be a messy situation. If you choose mediation, you can end your marriage more smoothly and preserve your co-parenting relationship with your former spouse.
