People facing the difficult decision to divorce, or the painful experience of having the other spouse choose an unwanted divorce, can realize important benefits from mediation.
The mediator facilitates meaningful dialogue and informed decision making about difficult and often complex issues surrounding a decision to divorce. In divorce mediation, couples may address their overall goals and what they believe is appropriate and responsive to their situation, and may then deal with conflicts as well as difficult but necessary decision making involving custody of children, parenting arrangements, child support of both minor and adult children, spousal support, real and personal property distribution, other financial asset division, debt allocation and responsibility, retirement plans, insurance plans and taxes.
Clients also have the opportunity to evaluate their current financial situation and to plan for their future financial needs while creating fair terms of agreement, as defined by the couple. If divorce is chosen, mediators at VakilHelp Mediators Mediation help couples with children end their relationship as husband and wife while continuing their relationship and roles as parents, collaboratively or with boundaries. Some clients may choose not to dissolve their marriage, but to be legally separated. With the mediator’s help, interim agreements can be reached to handle immediate concerns. Couples may then discuss, decide or negotiate a complete divorce agreement which may be reviewed by attorneys (not mandatory) and filed with the court.
Research shows that post-divorce compliance with mediated agreements is higher compared to imposed court judgments. The result is also less post-divorce conflict and litigation. Additional research on transformative mediation specifically shows parties’ satisfaction rates in the 90th percentile, regardless of how a party thought or was told he or she would do in court.
