Going through a divorce is never easy – not on the couple themselves nor their immediate family members. If separation is imminent, it’s always wise to get the appropriate parties in place to help you get through this challenging time. Luckily, divorce doesn’t always have to get ugly – there are other options.
Avoiding Nasty Divorce Proceedings
Divorce proceedings that are dragged through the courts can often get quite nasty, with both sides going to great lengths to protect their needs. Often such court proceedings can go on for months, and even years, leaving all parties emotionally and financially exhausted and the ruling out of their control. There are other options available.
Divorce mediation is a viable approach for those who are separated and want to end their marriage in a constructive manner where they maintain some control and dignity. Mediation is a problem solving approach that helps the couple sever their marriage amicably and respectfully, without having to resort to letting a judge handle all the details and decisions. This voluntary, confidential approach to divorce utilizes a third party who acts as the Mediator, who will help both sides work through all their issues in a calm and respectful manner.
A Mediation Agreement is signed by all parties, after which the participants identify the issues that need to be worked through and settled, including the joint home, business assets, child custody, and spousal support. The Mediator offersoptions to resolve such issues so each side can have their say. This is a much more positive approach to divorce as compared to traditional court proceedings.
