Getting a divorce can be one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. Between the finding an attorney, negotiating, going to court, the expenses and the harm it does to the family, it all seems very difficult to cope with. There is a simpler option for couples who are willing to work things out in good faith. Mediation is an excellent alternative in settling domestic disputes.
Instead of hiring an attorney for each spouse, a mediator acts as a neutral third party to listen and help negotiate for both sides. The mediator will guide the discussion, allowing for each party to explain their wants and needs and ultimately, come to a conclusion that works for both people. Using mediation, both parties can exercise greater control instead of leaving the decision up to a judge and having to pay high court fees. An added bonus is that you don’t have to have all of your personal life details on public court records.
Mediation isn’t just for couples getting a divorce, it could be for separation agreements or for business partners who are looking to go in different directions. When both parties are getting what they want, they are more willing to follow through with their agreements and keep an amiable relationship.
Don’t make the process any harder than it has to be, consider using a mediator. It will save you a lot of time and money that you can put to better use. Mediation keeps you out of the courts and leads you to a quicker resolution, what is better than that? Consider using a mediator for your difficult life decisions.
