When a couple decides to get a divorce, there are many decisions that need to be made. This process as a whole can be incredibly overwhelming, not only because there are so many different aspects that need to be considered, but also because ending a long relationship is naturally a very emotional time. Everyone’s situation is different, and sometimes that situation may benefit from obtaining a litigated divorce. Divorces that occur within court are recommended for couples who are in such a hostile situation that it would be impossible for them to sit in a room together and calmly make the life changing decisions that divorces require. However, if you are on amicable terms with the spouse you are obtaining a divorce from, you may be able to obtain a divorce through mediation services.
Mediation is generally a more peaceful conclusion to a marriage than litigated divorces are. There are many benefits to divorce through mediation other than the fact that it is somewhat more peaceful. Mediated divorces allow you the chance to really talk through the issues that caused your marriage to crumble in the first place. You may feel as though this can bring you a level of closure and a better feeling about your future in the time after the divorce. In addition, mediation is usually not only faster, but also cheaper. You will not have to pay court fees. Technically, you don’t even need to hire an attorney for a mediated divorce. You and your spouse can simply split the cost of a mediator. In addition, if you and your spouse have children together, you may be able to involve them in the mediation process so they can feel as though their voices have been heard in during this time where so many things are out of their control. If you are considering mediation, you should speak with an experienced divorce mediation attorney who can assist you in your case.
