How can mediation help divorcing couples?

| Nov 3, 2020 | Divorce |

Divorce mediation can help divorcing couples negotiate a divorce settlement agreement that addressed their divorce-related concerns including property division, child custody, child support and spousal support. It is useful for divorcing couples to have an understanding of how divorce mediation can help them with their divorce.

Addresses divorce-related issues more peacefully

The mediation process is a less acrimonious process in most circumstances which can be better for the divorcing couple and any children of the marriage and provides an more peaceful divorce option overall.

Gives the divorcing couple more control and confidentiality

The mediation process provides more control for the divorcing couple who will have more control over how divorce-related concerns, ranging from property division to issues related to the couple’s children, are resolved. It is also a more private process because it does not involve public court filings like a traditionally-litigated divorce would.

Resolve the divorce more quickly and efficiently

The mediation process can be less costly because it may not drag out as long as a traditionally-litigated divorce might. Because the process focuses on reaching agreements, rather than litigating disputes, it can be a more efficient option for the divorcing couple to resolve their divorce.

Provides a framework to resolve future disputes

The mediation process can provide a foundation for the divorcing couples to resolve problems that pop up down the road after they are divorced.

Divorce mediation has many benefits for divorcing couples, needing to resolve divorce-related issues, to be familiar with. Before deciding how to resolve their divorce, the divorcing couple should ensure they are familiar with the mediation process and the benefits of the same.
