Resolving disputes creatively

Considering mediation as a resource during divorce

The end of a marriage can be a difficult time for divorcing couples which is why they should be familiar with all of the family law resources available to help guide them through the process. Divorce mediation is one option for divorcing couples to consider in lieu of traditional divorce litigation which can be less time consuming, costly and acrimonious in some circumstances.

The divorce mediation process can help divorcing couples resolve their divorce-related concerns such as property division, child support and child custody. The divorce mediation process brings the divorcing couple together to resolve these issues with the help of a neutral third party or mediator. The mediator and mediation process can help the divorcing couple work through their divorce settlement agreement to reach a settlement agreement they can both live with.

It is important to note that the divorce mediation process gives the divorcing couple greater control over the outcome of their divorce, however, the family law process is available to help divorcing couples resolve divorce-related concerns they are unable to reach an agreement concerning. The mediation process is best described as facilitating negotiation so the divorcing couple can reach solutions that are best for them and their family. Another option to consider is the collaborative divorce process which is a bit more formal but can also provide value to divorcing couples considering their options.

Alternative dispute resources can save time, money and bad feelings between the divorcing couple and help them reach a settlement agreement that can also serve as a framework for future concerns the divorcing couple may have. It is useful for couples who have made the difficult decision to divorce to fully consider their options and decide which family law resources are best for them and their family.
