How Does Mediation Work?
In a divorce mediation case, a mediator works with both spouses to resolve all of the issues necessary for the court to grant a divorce. The mediator can help you and your spouse identify common goals, work through differences and ultimately find solutions to issues of:
You should always consider using an experienced family law attorney to mediate your case. At the end of the process, an attorney mediator will draft a settlement that clearly provides what you and your spouse agreed.. Non-lawyer mediators may not have the skill and they lack the legal knowledge and expertise needed to draft a document that most closely reflects the needs and wishes of a particular couple. Even when the mediator is an attorney, each spouse is encouraged to review the agreements reached with their own lawyers.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Mediation?
As a certified marital mediator, Ora Schwartzberg helps clients realize the many benefits that mediation provides. Just a few of these are:
Constructive ideas: Mediation allows creativity to come to the surface; many of these ideas would have never occurred to you or your spouse in a litigation setting. The two of you, as a unit, are best equipped to resolve these issues because of the knowledge you share regarding the intricacies of your finances and your relationships with your children.
Positive relationships after divorce: Especially if you have children, you and your former spouse will probably continue to have contact. Mediation can help you minimize bitterness and anger, leading to a more amicable relationship.
A different perspective: If you and your spouse have agreed on most issues before mediation, the mediator will help you to explore how various aspects of your agreement may play out in the future. If necessary, the agreement can be adjusted to account for separate and joint goals and to protect against certain unintended circumstances.
