Divorce and Mediation – Finding a Way to Settle

Most people getting a divorce recognize that their relationship has failed, but they both want to move on to a better situation. The problem is, divorce is not just walking away – it requires a number of key decisions to be made to legally separate two parties and their assets. Divorce and mediation often go hand-in-hand. When possible, work out the agreements you can with your soon-to-be-spouse. When this is not possible, then you may need to turn to mediation.

What Happens in Mediation?

In divorce and mediation, the two parties agree to work with a third-party – an unbiased professional – to help them to make decisions. Initially, this party is charged with understanding the situation fully and being able to receive information about the case from both sides. They do not take sides in this process. Rather, they work to relay information and help the two parties to come together on an agreement. Generally speaking, the mediator’s job is to ensure that both parties walk away with an equal and fair share of the marital property.

Why Should You Consider One?

A mediator works to balance not just the assets, but also the hostilities. While it is not their job to settle arguments, they take that emotion out of the divorce process. That is important. At the end of the day, you want to be sure you have a fair share of what you and your soon-to-be-spouse have built up over the years. The mediator can help you both to come to an agreement in this manner.

There are other benefits, as well. It can save you time and money by keeping these decisions out of the hands of the court (though the court still has to approve of the decisions). It can be the fairest option overall for all involved. It is also a confidential process. No one knows what happens here, aside from those you tell. And, it keeps you, as the divorcing adults, in charge of the outcome of the marriage. That means it is not the decision of a judge who does not know you, to determine what happens to your family assets.
