One of the things that separates a mediated divorce from court-based divorce processes is that divorce mediators are committed to making the divorce process as easy as possible for their clients. While the courts may have individuals who share this commitment, the system is simply not set up to make divorces that proceed through the court system easy, fast or smooth. Lawyers, who represent each divorcing spouse, are expensive and tend to be motivated by winning at almost any cost. This can lead to a heightened adversarial nature of the proceedings, which can cause delays and increase the conflict between the divorcing spouses.
Benefits Of Divorce Mediation
Lesa Koski offers her divorce mediation services as a clear alternative to litigation. She is motivated by helping you and your spouse find areas of agreement and building on them to create the potential for you, your spouse, and family members who are impacted by your divorce come through the process with as little stress and conflict as possible. In many cases, couples and their family members are able to emerge from the process with better relationships. This is helpful because while you may be divorcing your spouse, you will still need to have a working relationship with him/her after your divorce is final.
If you have wondered if you should contact a divorce mediator, the answer is a resounding “yes.” Of course, we are biased, but we are biased in a way that works to serve you and your divorcing spouse better. Our bias is in the direction of helping you move on with your life after divorce, and to feel as prepared as possible for whatever is in store for you and your former spouse as it relates to future contact. This is especially important if you have children and both of you wish to remain in their lives.
