Going through a divorce is oftentimes one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. It brings stress, hardship, and many emotions to the table and can be difficult to sort through on your own. Going through a divorce often involves financial separations, and negotiating over custody of children. When you are going through a divorce you often want to consult with two different people either a Neutral Divorce Mediator, or an attorney and sometimes both. So how do you choose and what is the benefit of a Neutral Divorce Mediator?
Neutral Divorce Mediator
A divorce mediator is considered a neutral and doesn’t work for either party, but rather helps guides couples to make decisions and keep communication open. That means the mediator does not give advice to either party, but rather remain neutral. What the mediator does rather, is assist the divorcing couple in finding ideas that usually leads to agreements. That open communication of information frees both spouses to negotiate with each other in confidence.
Divorce mediation is usually the preferred route that couples take because it is the most beneficial, especially because it is more timely than court, cost effective and helps people develop successful parenting partnerships.
Avoid Divorce Litigation
Mediation is beneficial in several ways compared to going to litigation. It allows couples to discuss important issues in a safe and constructive environment, and enables couples to move through tough discussions and make decisions. Many couples that decide to take their case to court report that they felt unsatisfied with the results because they were not decided upon by them, but rather the judge and attorneys will make your personal decisions for you. Furthermore, mediation is a quick process compared to court. Although each couple is different and some decisions and processes take longer than others, on average mediation takes about 1/4th the time court takes and is far less expensive, and that is why it is becoming increasingly more popular.
