What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a form of dispute resolution that involves a neutral third party mediator working with the divorcing couples to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. Mediation is a cooperative process that typically costs less than traditional court proceedings and can provide both parties fair input into the agreement.
What is the role of a Mediator in Divorce Mediation?
A mediator is an impartial third party who helps divorcing parties resolve their disputes by identifying and clarifying the issues, facilitating communication, suggesting alternative solutions, and guiding the parties towards reaching a mutually acceptable agreement. Mediators do not make any decisions; their role is to guide the couple through the process in a neutral and unbiased way.
What are the benefits of Divorce Mediation?
There are numerous benefits to choosing divorce mediation, including:
Is Divorce Mediation the right choice for me?
Divorce mediation might not be the best option for everyone. If the dynamics between the divorcing parties are too contentious, or there is a history of domestic violence, then mediation may not be safe or appropriate. However, if both parties are willing to participate, work together cooperatively, and share a common goal of resolving their issues, then mediation is worth exploring.
Can I still use a lawyer during divorce mediation?
Yes, having legal representation during mediation is optional but can certainly be beneficial. Occasionally the mediator will advise a party to hire a lawyer where the issues are out of their scope or expertise. Having a lawyer can provide peace of mind, especially when it comes to understanding legal and financial information.
