Mediation is an extremely sound decision for divorcing couples, particularly when children are involved. Couples will meet with a professional mediator who is a neutral third party. The mediator will listen carefully to both sides’ concerns and encourage couples to listen to one another with an open mind. Couples may then exchange viewpoints, clarify their differences and work toward an agreement that satisfies and benefits everyone.
For divorcing parents, mediation is ideal for designing schedules, and defining the roles and responsibilities in their children’s lives. Every family is unique, and the mediator’s role is to help craft an agreement tailored to each situation. Mediation offers divorcing couples the chance to part on civil terms; to work together and cooperate as parents despite their differences. Stormy litigation is emotionally debilitating and damaging to everyone, and too often children are caught in the middle. Mediation will avoid that.
Mediation saves time and money, and allows the parties to control all important decisions, avoiding the land of combative lawyers otherwise known as the judicial system. And your privacy is safe: Mediation is strictly confidential and not subject to public record.
