Solve Conflicts and Other Issues in a Civilized Way With Divorce Mediation

Divorce doesn’t have to be nasty and drawn out. Many people are fully capable of coming to an agreement on what is best for them and their shared children without trials and lengthy processes. If you are more interested in mediating than litigating, here are three benefits to consider:

1. Agree To Keep Matters Out of Court

If you and your ex-spouse agree and commit upfront to settle matters out of court, then you enter into negotiations from a completely different mindset. You are less focused on what you can get or what the other person did, and you are more focused on getting results that are fair and equitable and move the process forward. Mediation and Collaboration are results-focused and, in general, more amicable.

2. Work With a Team Toward a Common Goal

In mediation and collaborative divorce, the people involved are looked at as more of a team striving toward a common goal of equitable resolution as opposed to opposing parties in conflict with one another. Initial understandings on parenting time, asset distribution, and personal property can be transitioned to full agreement on both sides with experts leveraged to work through the logistical pieces. When everyone is working toward a shared goal, much can be accomplished.

3. Make Use of Experts

Just like other divorces, psychologists, asset valuators, and other experts can be leveraged. But unlike other divorces, mediation and collaborative approached allow for the agreed use of one expert agreed upon to work in the best collective interest as opposed to one party over the other. You also leverage one expert instead of each party paying for their own.

Mediation and collaborative approaches are a productive, rational approach to divorce if you and your ex can agree on the basics and commit to resolving matters out of court. For more information, contact us today and schedule a consultation.
