What is Divorce Mediation?

Mediation is a way for a couple to resolve their divorce without having to go to court. Mediation is not only incredibly effective, but many people find meditation to be one of the best ways to settle a divorce. During mediation, the parties meet with a neutral mediator whose job it is to help them reach decisions and agreements over such issues as parenting time, child custody, property division, and spousal support. It’s expected that the parties will disagree about certain issues. The mediator’s objective is to help the parties talk through their disagreements so they are able to effectively reach an agreement or settlement.

Who Should Consider Mediation?

Anyone can benefit from resolving their divorce through mediation. That being said, mediation may not be for you if you and your spouse simply cannot get along or work together. In that case, you may be better off letting your attorneys argue your case in court. Mediation is a great alternative to litigation for those people who are willing to put aside their differences and come together to try and resolve their divorce. And those people who do use mediation to settle their divorce will find they will save time and money in the long run.

If you are interested in resolving your divorce through mediation, please take a moment to contact the Denver Family Lawyers. Attorney William “Bill” Thode can act as the mediator, listening to what both you and your spouse have to say, clearly explaining how the laws apply to the issue at hand, and how the judge would likely decide your case in court. Furthermore, everything said during mediation will be kept in the strictest confidence, and nothing that was said or disclosed will be used in court should mediation be unsuccessful.
