Do Both Parties Require A Mediator in Divorce?

Do Both Parties Require A Mediator in Divorce?

Divorce mediation offers many couples an alternative to traditional divorce that better fits their needs and lifestyle. Litigated divorces can be long and drawn out, full of court appearances, and attorney fees along the way. This is not appealing for many couples who wish to work together to reach an amicable agreement in their divorce for matters including property division, finances, child custody, debt distribution, and more. 


Mediated divorces will only require one mediator who works with both parties to ensure their needs are being met and that neither party is using intimidation tactics or their position to influence the other party into agreeing with them. Whenever you choose to have a mediated divorce, the agreements you come to will be private between both spouses and a neutral third party who acts as the mediator. The mediator will be responsible for ensuring the agreement the couple reaches is fair and mutually beneficial, presently and in the future. 


Working with a divorce mediator can be helpful because they will have insight and knowledge that can help you to make the best choices for your divorce. Even if both divorcing parties are in total agreement about how they would like to divide their shared property and rights, it is helpful to have a neutral third party weigh-in to ensure there will be no problems that arrive down the road that they may not be thinking of.
