Mediation can smooth over these 3 key points in your divorce

On Behalf of | May 12, 2022 | Divorce

During your divorce, there are sure to be points of contention on which neither spouse is willing to budge. An impartial third party can help settle matters patiently and fairly.

The input of a mediator can be particularly valuable if you hire the services of a professional who is familiar with divorce law. While many couples shy away from inviting another individual into their personal affairs, mediation can be an incredible boon for smoothing over the more intense topics in your divorce.

1. Asset division

The division of property, debt and other assets can be very sensitive when each party in a divorce feels a sense of ownership or entitlement over certain items. Seeking counsel from someone not involved with the divorce can make it easier to outline a fair division.

2. Child custody

In the event that you and your spouse do not reach a mutual agreement regarding child custody, the court will make a decision for the child’s best interests. Opting for mediation is another way to reach an impartial outcome, but you will still retain a certain amount of control over the situation.

3. Communication planning

For better or worse, you still need to stay in touch with your spouse after the divorce in order to discuss parenting responsibilities and other important matters. Your mediator can help you draft a communication plan that keeps both spouses accountable and minimizes disputes in the long run.

Mediation is the best way to reach an unbiased settlement in your divorce outside of a courtroom. The best mediators are often family law attorneys who have the trust of the courts.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
