Common divorce mediation myths

On Behalf of | Feb 20, 2022 | divorce | 0 comments

Uncontested divorces are a great option for couples that want to end their marriages as soon and as cheaply as possible.

However, many people are wary of settling their issues outside of court due to misconceptions about mediation.

I hired a lawyer, so I cannot go to mediation

Many divorcing couples utilize the services of both attorneys and mediators. Many lawyers become qualified mediators. If you and your spouse can come to an agreement via mediation, your lawyers can draw up your settlement documents and submit them to the court for approval. You can finalize your divorce quickly and without a costly court battle.

We have children and property, so mediation is not an option

If you and your ex can be civil, then mediation can help you settle your affairs amicably no matter the complexity of your joint life. Child custody, visitation and property division are all issues that you can resolve with the help of a skilled mediator.

When the judge hears my story, I will win!

Embittered parties may want to vent their frustrations and get revenge for their suffering. However, the courtroom is not an appropriate venue for airing out hurt feelings. When you leave your divorce settlement in the hands of a judge, you may not get the results you want. It may be better to let a mediator handle the negotiations with your ex, and let your therapist take on your mental and emotional stress.

When you are ready to officially end your unhealthy marriage, you deserve to move on with your life without turmoil.
