Going through a divorce is always going to be difficult, no matter how you look at it. The dissolution of a marriage is sad, especially if there are any children involved. Despite how tough divorce can be, it doesn’t always have to result in an all-out war between the two parties, and take months or even years to get through. It also doesn’t have to cost a fortune and suck every penny out of each divorcing spouse, much like what you’d hear about from peers or even see on TV.
Divorcing with Dignity
Aside from the typical divorce court to end a marriage and deal with all matters of a separation agreement, there are other, more amicable and cost-effective ways to get through divorce. One such method is through divorce mediation. In this case, a specially trained divorce lawyer who specializes in mediation gets involved upon acceptance by both parties. The mediatoracts as an unbiased third party who helps the parties through the process of settling all marital issues in the separation agreement. The mediator works under the laws and governance of Ontario, helping both sides reach a fair and amicable compromise, keeping the best interests of the children in mind as the family goes forward. Getting a divorce mediator Oakville Mississauga involved can help the parties keep better control over how matters are settled, rather than placing all of this control in the hands of a judge in court.
The mediator’s job is to essentially help to streamline the divorce process and to help ensure that all settlements are made effectively, which is a much better scenario for everyone, including children. Matters that are handled include the division of the family home, business assets, vacation homes, spousal support, child support, and child custody, to name a few. After a separation agreement has been reached, the divorce mediator will prepare a Memorandum of Understanding. Each spouse will then take this paperwork to their own lawyers, with any necessary changes made by these respective lawyers. With the separation agreement in hand, the divorce can proceed quickly, with dignity, allowing the spouces to move on to a better tomorrow.
