The benefits of divorce mediation are significant. To start, a mediator is someone who has the necessary training to listen to both spouses during discussions about parenting and financial issues, and guide them toward decisions that they both feel are the best for all involved. With a properly trained mediator, many people feel a lot safer expressing their needs and asking for what they think is best aligned to their priorities and the needs of their families. This is a very effective process in divorce proceedings, one that doesn’t exist if both spouses hire lawyers and communicate only through their lawyers.
A professional mediator can also help identify creative solutions that allow the spouses to find better paths forward. Mediators don’t make decisions, but guide the couple to make their own best decisions together.
If the conversation is not progressing in a healthy manner, a professional mediator can employ a number of techniques to move the discussion forward. Divorce mediation is a great option for most couples, and is especially valuable if you want to be heard, make all of your own decisions, save money, time and stress, and be in the best possible solution to co-parent in the healthiest manner post-divorce. Many people are not aware, but with mediation, you still will be required to have lawyer and judge review to ensure that all agreements are reasonable.
