When you have decided to get a divorce, the process can be long and expensive. It’s a good idea to look for ways to make it easier. One of these is to use divorce mediation to help to get many of the decisions made before the divorce. Rather than having two divorce lawyers who engage in expensive back-and-forth arguing for their clients, the divorcing couple can go to get divorce mediation help instead.
It’s important to go into this type of mediation with an open mind. If you go into it with a closed mind and don’t want to do any negotiating, you’re just wasting everyone’s time as well as the cost of mediation.
However, if you go into it in good faith and want to help get decisions made, this can be far easier and less expensive, as well as faster, than fighting over everything with divorce lawyers.
You need to be willing to give up certain things to get other things that you want. It’s important to work with the mediation process to come to agreements on many of the items that are being argued about. Deciding who gets what is a good start to getting the divorce going.
