Is it possible to appeal a divorce decree?

Unfortunately, many of life's most important events do not work out in a way that serves everyone's best interests. Divorce is one of these life events that could resolve in a manner that seems unfair to one spouse. Taking a different approach such as divorce mediation can help both spouses reach a fair agreement. However, even this solution may not work in the best interests of one divorcing party.

Should you involve your children in divorce mediation?

The subject of whether to involve children in divorce mediation is quite controversial, especially now that families have so many different parenting styles. As attorneys, we would never attempt to advise our blog readers on this topic, because we have not met them face-to-face. As such, we have no idea if their kids are mature and emotionally healthy enough to participate.

Tips to keep a divorce mediation conversation civil

One of the most important parts of the divorce mediation process is simply being able to have a civil conversation with your spouse about ending the marriage. Mediation keeps you out of court and gives you more control over your decisions, but you have to be able to work together to make those decisions. If you cannot do so, mediation will not succeed.

Be wary of proposing too many rules for child custody

One advantage of divorce mediation is that you and your ex get to propose your own rules regarding child custody. While your arrangement does still need to be signed off on by the court, this gives you far more freedom in determining how you want to move forward than letting the courts set the terms.
