Signs that your divorce may be a good fit for mediation

Going through a divorce is an emotional and stressful process. Not all divorces are contentious or bitter. In fact, some couples can work together to settle the issues of divorce without ending up in court.

While not a possibility for everyone, amicable couples could avoid going to family court by settling matters through mediation. If the following characteristics apply to the relationship between you and your spouse, mediation could help resolve your divorce.

1. The couple grew apart

Not every couple is angry and hostile when seeking a divorce. If you simply grew apart over time and do not feel a strong romantic connection, mediation could help you reach a settlement as two friends rather than disgruntled lovers.

2. The couple works well together

If you and your spouse are still able to work together and have reasonable, productive conversations, you could benefit from mediation over divorce court. Mediation involves communication and compromise, which is a lot easier when the couple is still speaking and working together to resolve issues.

3. The couple prioritizes the kids

When there are decisions to make regarding children, and couples cannot agree, it often takes the court to settle issues with child support or custody. A couple that prioritized the needs of the kids and puts their best interest at the front of all decision-making could determine these important issues through mediation and without input from a judge.

While a divorce is a tough time for any family, mediation can help reduce some of the stress and trauma associated with family court. A willingness to work together and the ability to communicate make a couple a good candidate for this option.

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.
