So you are furious with your ex, why would you bother with mediation in your divorce? Mediation offers several resources to divorcing spouses that are not always part of a litigated divorce proceeding. Mediators are trained to diffuse the emotional issues that surround divorce. By addressing the problems that create anger, parties can come to better decisions that work for their family. In addition, children of mediated divorces may benefit from the communication skills learned in the mediation process. This can foster better co-parenting skills and lead to mutually beneficial custody arrangements.
Mediation offers several unique features such as the ability to negotiate an agreement that works for you and keeping your personal family matters out of the public court record. Also, you can choose to mediate your divorce with or without lawyers present. Additionally, costs of mediation may, in some cases, be less than in a litigated divorce. All lawyers at Epstein Law Firm are also trained mediators. For more information about mediating your divorce, please contact a lawyer.
