In some cases of divorce, mediation can be an effective and valuable process to help the parties involved work out their disagreements and engage in conflict resolution. Mediation involves both spouses voluntarily agreeing to work with an appointed, third party mediator to discuss all aspects of the divorce. These discussions can include a range of topics from child support to the division of debt.
The Advantage of Mediation
Mediation can be a very successful and preferable alternative to lengthy litigation in court. It’s designed to help those involved in a divorce to come to conclusions on their own, focusing on cooperation instead of fighting. Many people prefer the more informal setting of mediation to the courtroom.
Mediators involved are there to act as an objective third party, suggesting ideas as needed, but mostly ensuring each party’s thoughts and opinions are heard and represented accurately. Their goal should be to help both spouses reach a fair agreement on the issues at hand, including the division of property, parenting rights, child and spousal support.
