What is divorce mediation?

A divorce is a legal process that undoes the legal union that two people create when they get married. In Texas, individuals have options for how they can choose to bring about their divorces. They may elect to pursue traditional methods of divorce through the courts, or they may choose to use the services of divorce mediators to find common ground with their soon-to-be ex-spouse and create their own divorce resolutions.

In a mediated divorce the parties work with a qualified third-party who counsels them on their options for divorce, but who does not make any decisions for them regarding their divorce outcomes. A mediator may explain how custody in Texas works, but the mediator may not tell the parties how they should divide their time with their shared children.

Not all divorcing couples will be able to manage the mediation process. Those who struggle with significant conflicts may not be able to put their differences aside and work together to reach their shared goal of divorce. However, couples who can be civil and amicable despite their differences may benefit from choosing mediation over litigation to end their marriages.

Although all divorces are different, mediated divorces can cost less money and cause less stress than traditional litigated divorces. Individuals often feel more at peace with the financial, custody and support decisions they must live with in their post-divorce lives when they are the ones who actually negotiated and established the rules by which they will live. Pursuing a mediated divorce requires couples to find mediators who are qualified to serve their needs. Speaking with an attorney familiar with mediation can be a good first step for those who want to learn more about this divorce option.
