Divorce can be challenging enough without acrimonious disputes that take more time and money to work through. An alternative to the traditionally-litigated divorce is divorce mediation which may be able to help divorcing couples resolve their divorce-related issues more amicably.
The divorce mediation process involves a third-party neutral who helps guide the divorcing spouses through the divorce process by helping them reached shared agreements concerning divorce-related issues such as property division, child support, spousal support and child custody. The mediator facilitates an equitable process that allows the divorcing spouses to fairly resolve divorce-related concerns.
Because of how the divorce mediation process is designed, it offers a number of valuable benefits for divorcing spouses to consider. The divorce mediation process can be more efficient and less costly. It can result in less time and money because the divorcing couple do not have to resort to costly and time-consuming litigation of their disputes. In addition, the divorce litigation process can be more private and create a framework for peacefully resolving disputes down the road.
It is important to keep in mind that divorcing couples need to be able to work together to benefit from the divorce mediation process. They should also be committed to the process to enjoy its benefits. Divorce mediation can be better for children involved in the divorce as well as the divorcing couple. It can lead to fewer bad feelings and less hostility which benefits everyone impacted by the divorce, making it an option to consider and for divorcing couples to be familiar with.
