Divorce mediation helps couples resolve many issues

Many Florida couples approaching the end of marriage tend to view divorce mediation as a fad or a trend. They may not understand the many benefits this way of ending a marriage offers. Quick examples of these benefits include less conflict for parents and kids, affordable costs and a faster overall resolution.

Divorce mediation worth exploring

Marriages don't have to end the way divorce is portrayed in the movies. There doesn't have to be one partner throwing the other's stuff out the window. Or worse yet, threatening to withhold the children from the other. There are ways to split-up under civil circumstances and move on without litigation.

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.
