Divorce can be traumatic. Too often, it’s emotionally and financially devastating. A traditional divorce can leave you exhausted, bitter and broke. But your divorce doesn’t have to be that way. If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse mutually agree that your marriage is over and divorce is necessary, you should consider mediation. For many couples, it’s a faster, cheaper and less acrimonious way to make the big split.
What Is Mediation?
- In mediation, you and your spouse sit down with a neutral third person, called a “mediator,” to craft an agreement for ending your marriage. Your mediator will help you write the agreement, and then you’ll submit it to a court for approval.
Your goal is to determine:
- How your property will be divided between the both of you.
- How your debts will be divided and paid.
- Who will have custody of your children and how you’ll share parenting responsibilities.
- If child support or alimony will be paid, and if so, how much and for how long.
Why Choose Mediation?
- The benefit of mediation is that you and your spouse, not judges and lawyers, make the decisions.
- Your aim is to reach an agreement that enables you both to go on with your lives, comfortably, after the divorce.
Mediation works best in situations when:
- Both spouses want the divorce.
- Neither spouse wants to “stick it to” the other spouse.
- Both spouses want a good relationship after the divorce to share parenting responsibilities.
