The process of divorcing or modifying the possession and access schedule with your children is known to be an inherently combative process. Mud flies, and ex-spouses and parents wind up with their relationships harmed indefinitely. It doesn’t have to be that way. People can settle contentious disputes in a way that allows them to co-parent and work together for the betterment of their children. If you wish to dissolve your marriage or modify custody without having to endure a nasty courtroom battle, you definitely want to consider mediation. At Blanchard & Thomas, PLLC, our mediation team is skilled at guiding you through the process in a collaborative and peaceful way. Let us help you stop the hate!
Most couples and co-parents can benefit from divorce mediation. Most times it will be ordered by the court anyway. However, if you suspect your spouse is hiding assets, being dishonest, or if the marriage was abusive, mediation, at least right off the bat, might not be right for you. Candidates for mediation must be open to the idea of transparency and compromising with one another. Just like the tango, it takes two to mediate successfully.
Mediation is not only a more diplomatic process than litigation, but it is also far less time-consuming, which equates to significantly less expense.
Below are some additional advantages of mediation:
