Divorce is a complex process, one that involves many financial matters and emotional issues. As Texas readers know, the process can be stressful and lengthy, but divorce mediation may be a tool that can be leveraged for the benefit of all parties involved. Mediation not only allows couples to work through certain issues with the help of a neutral third party, it also can alleviate some of the stress and cost of a divorce.
The main goal of divorce mediation is to guide both parties to solutions for some of the most complex and contentious aspects of divorce. This includes child custody and property division. The third-party mediator guides a divorcing couple through discussions and negotiations, helping them arrive at an agreement. This helps to avoid costly and stressful litigation and provides more control over the final divorce order.
Mediation is a tool that savvy couples can use to leverage for their benefit at the end of a marriage. Mediated agreements tend to provide the most positive solution for all parties involved and are more sustainable in the future when both parties custom tailor the agreement. While this is not a practical choice for all Texas couples, we are experienced in handling these matters, focusing on positive settlements in even the most contentious of situations.
Lack of control is one of the most frustrating aspects of a litigated divorce, but there are other options available. Divorce mediation can allow you to pursue your desired outcome to certain disputes in a calm, neutral environment through discussions and negotiations. Protect your best interests and save time and money by considering this alternative to a costly court battle.
