When Does it Make Sense to Mediate a Separation Agreement?
If you and your spouse have very few marital assets or debts, no children, and a mutual understanding that living apart for a while is the best course of action, then you may be able to get by without a separation agreement. However, if you have children, a house you own jointly, joint bank accounts, etc., then things can get complicated very quickly.
Mediation allows couples to address and resolve the important issues pertaining to the separation. With separation mediation, a neutral, third-party mediator facilitates a discussion between the spouses toward reaching a mutually agreeable solution. When the mediation sessions are completed, the spouses have the assurance that they are on the same page, and that the agreement is in writing and approved by the court.
