January 23, 2017

Comprehensive Mediation for Divorcing CouplesComprehensive mediation for divorcing couples is a program that is designed for couples that are somewhat amicable, but want to seek professional help to make informed decisions about important issues and concerns such as negotiating property, taxes, retirement funds, child custody, and child support. Many times comprehensive mediation is used for these difficult issues when trying to separate assets, and a parenting plan.

Why Seek Divorce Mediation?

Mediation is confidential and helps keep the lines of communication open. It gives both parties to settle conflict between you in a way that helps you to work together as parents, settle in a positive manner in regards to financial disputes. Finding a positive solution is extremely important especially when children are involved and communication is going to be necessary while parenting together after the divorce. Lack of communication is oftentimes the main problem when going through a divorce and that is why many people seek out a mediator to help them stay focused when discussing issues, brainstorm resolutions and bring an objective opinion to the table in order to make smart, helpful decisions. A divorce mediator does not work for either party, but rather works with you to remain neutral no matter what the situation.

When meeting with a mediator to assist the divorcing couple, ideas can be formulated which will lead to agreements that will stand the test of time. The exchange of information between parties can help make decisions and negotiate in order to allow both parties to move forward with their lives after the divorce and help them learn how to communicate appropriately and effectively in order to make healthy decisions. As a result of both spouses working with the same information, it usually takes far less time to negotiate a resolution that makes sense to both spouses.

Comprehensive Divorce Mediation is often times about the ⅕ of the cost of settling in court and takes about ¼ of the time. Many times when divorce goes straight to court neither party has tried to negotiate their issues effectively and the court will make decisions for you that often leaves one or both parties feeling hostile, unsettled and even angry. Most divorced couples walk away feeling unsatisfied by the results. When couples choose to seek mediation, many people have reported feeling satisfied with the results, and feel as if they received an agreement that they wanted. If you are not in control of making your own decisions that often leads to feeling unhappy, so why take your divorce to court and allow someone to make those decisions for you?
