Not everyone has the same experience when using divorce mediation during their divorce process. Of course, part of the reason for that is that each person has a unique set of circumstances, and, personalities present in their divorce.
However, there are certain “rules” that apply across the board when it comes to how successful your mediation is going to be. These are:
· How committed you are to a peaceful resolution
· How committed your divorce attorney is to a peaceful resolution
· How willing you are to forgive your spouse, and yourself
· How willing you are to take full responsibility for your life and choices
People who go into a mediation letting their lawyers do all the talking, needing to get even, needing to win, and delegating the decision-making to their divorce attorneys, will not experience all that mediation has to offer.
These folks will use the mediation process the same way as the litigation process, then complain that it doesn’t work! But Divorce Mediation does work. As they say, “It works if you work it.”
Divorce Mediation can lead to a peaceful resolution of your breakup and an uncontested divorce settlement, which greatly minimizes the negative effects of divorce on children. It can move you and your spouse through the cause of divorce, and beyond, to an effective co-parenting relationship. It can help you successfully settle all issues regarding divorce child custody.
And, your mediation can save you thousands of dollars in the process! Can you think of anything else you’d like to spend that money on? Well, go ahead, think about all that it can buy – and get committed to making the most of your Divorce Mediation.
