How Mediation Can Be a Much Less Stressful Divorce Process
Divorces can be very stressful, and contentious litigation could make a difficult time even harder for people. Litigation is inherently adversarial, and the process tends to pit people against one another. Mediation may help divorcing couples avoid some of the stress of traditional divorce proceedings.
Have More Control in the Process
Litigation is fraught with uncertainty. Parties do not know what to expect or what the outcome will be, so they may experience a sense of dread or even helplessness.
By opting to mediate, divorcing couples can have more say in what will happen. In general, this is preferable to delegating important decisions to a judge or magistrate.
Maintain Constructive Communication
In a traditional divorce, having to go through attorneys to have a dialog puts a serious strain on communications. When people who are ending a marriage must maintain a relationship as co-parents, letting communication devolve could interfere with their ability to effectively support children’s well-being after divorce.
Mediators guide clients to interact constructively and compromise to reach agreements. Being able to cooperate can dramatically ease parents’ concerns about their capacity to co-parent.
Reduce the Expense and Duration of Getting a Divorce
Mediating a divorce can be less costly and time consuming than appearing in court and filing motions several times. Contact Out-of-Court Solutions to learn more about affordable mediation options.
