Divorce and other family law matters are some of the most stressful situations any person – and especially children – must navigate, even in the most agreeable of circumstances (which is often not the case, unfortunately). And the adversarial nature of the courts only exacerbates emotions on all sides.
No one wants to go through a contentious divorce.
Thankfully, there are alternatives to litigation that provide separating couples the ability to use mediation to resolve their disputes in a cooperative manner.
Mediation is a process by which the two parties work through their issues with a neutral, professional mediator working to facilitate an agreement.
Mediators do not make decisions. They work with both parties to create fair agreements. When decisions are made, the attorneys will draft and review the papers submitted to the court for approval. When the couple works together to amicably end the marriage, there is less likelihood that the end result will be viewed as unfair by either party.
