If you and your partner have decided to get divorced, you will need to complete a legal process in order to finalize the separation. Our team at the office of Robert G. Spaugh, Attorney at Law, has extensive experience in family law, and we have helped countless couples through this complex process. We offer divorce mediation to help you and your ex make important decisions in a collaborative, civil manner, and we strongly encourage you to pursue this avenue. In this article, we’ll go over a few of the benefits of divorce mediation to help you decide if this process is right for you.

Benefits of Divorce Mediation

  • Cost-Effectiveness – One benefit of divorce mediation over a trial is its lower cost. Divorce court proceedings can become expensive quickly, and there have been cases where the fees involved significantly drained the assets the couple was fighting over. By going through the mediation process, you and your ex can save money—money you can then use to care for your children, if you have them, or to build your new single life.
  • Increased Decision-Making Power – Another benefit of divorce mediation is the way it allows you and your ex to retain decision-making power. Instead of having a judge step in to decide important matters for you, you can make the decisions yourselves, provided you are able to come to an agreement. Your mediator will be there to help you make decisions about things like child custody, child support, division of assets, etc.
  • Better Working RelationshipDivorce mediation is a great choice for couples with children because it helps you and your ex build a new working relationship as co-parents, even as you dissolve your marriage. Studies consistently show that children of divorced parents have better outcomes when their parents can remain civil and co-parent effectively, without bitterness.

Although the divorce process is never pleasant, there are ways to minimize the stress and conflict involved, and our team can help you do so. Contact our office today to learn more.
