It almost goes without saying, if you and your spouse have recently decided to get a divorce, you’re probably not on the best terms. But just because you’re arguing a lot or are having difficulty communicating doesn’t mean mediation isn’t an option for your divorce.
If you’ve decided to get a divorce, the traditional court litigation model is not your only option. There are a variety of different alternative dispute resolution options that allow you to handle your divorce out of court and in a more cooperative and dignified manner.
Many couples wonder if mediation is the best path to take when getting a divorce. Although mediation can potentially save you time and money, there are a variety of factors to consider when deciding if mediation is right for you.
In mediation, the goal is to arrive at a mutual agreement and determine the terms of the divorce through open communication and compromise. When an agreement is reached through mediation, both parties can save money and time that would otherwise have been wasted in the traditional court litigation model. That’s why for many people seeking a divorce, mediation is the best option.
If you and your spouse have decided on divorce and are looking for an alternative way to resolve your dispute, mediation may be your best option for moving forward. In divorce mediation, you and your spouse will negotiate the details of your divorce with the assistance of a neutral third party.
