Divorce mediators are trained to be empathetic to the needs of both parties. Mediators focus on the two of you, your conflict and the important issues that each each of you wish to address; not one or the other of you. A mediator isn’t an advocate for either of you; he/she is a neutral concerned with supporting the both of you together. This is why concerns such as child custody, property, financial matters and more, can be discussed with the mediator, who will guide the both of you to a peaceful resolution that fits the particular needs of your family.
Divorce Mediation Can Reduce the Stress on Emotionally & Financially
Divorces are stressful on your entire family unit. Handling a divorce with a mediator can reduce the stress of this emotional time. The divorce mediation process avoids having discussions about the personal aspects of your life in such a non-personal setting like a court room where decisions are made for you, not by and with you. The stress of the high cost of litigation definitely makes divorce conversations even more nerve-racking and mediation levels down the conversation to a discussion rather than an argument.
A Divorce Mediation Eases the Impact of Divorce on Your Children
Working with a mediator saves the children from the stress of a court room setting. This is a huge benefit and can make the divorce process a less traumatic experience for all. The divorce mediator has much more flexibility in the scheduling of times that they can meet with clients in order to resolve important issues concerning the divorce at times and often on a better schedule than the court can.
Discussions with the mediator, in a private setting, one on one, can manage rising tensions when talking about important issues. While the mediator doesn’t make decisions for you, they are skilled at resolving conflicts and clearing the lines of communication between disagreeing spouses or ex-partners. They keep the discussions about issues such as child custody and the dividing of assets on track. Mediators help each spouse voice their own needs so each party feels heard. A mediator’s toolkit can help individuals and couples avoid unpleasant moments when discussing these highly emotional issues, making conversations smoother and more productive.
