When the word “divorce” is thrown into a conversation, it is quite likely that everyone involved immediately starts thinking about the “doom and gloom” of divorce. It is inherent to the matter of divorce, or so we have been told our entire life. Obviously, divorce isn’t necessarily something anyone wants to do. It’s not at the top of a bucket list or anything. But, the divorce process doesn’t have to be an excruciating, drawn-out and painful experience as it is so often portrayed.
Now granted, that doesn’t mean that divorce is easy. There are still many matters that need to be worked out, no matter what type of divorce you seek. But just because a couple is getting divorce doesn’t mean that they have to be at each other’s throat, arguing about every little detail involved in their relationship.
To this end, divorce mediation is an excellent choice that offers many benefits to the splitting spouses. People who choose divorce mediation often find that the process is less stressful and more economical than a traditional divorce. Mediation can eliminate vast amounts of litigation that can often hang up a divorce, and with less litigation means more financial savings for the spouses involved.
Maybe the greatest benefit of divorce mediation is that it allows for the splitting spouses to create a more customized agreement that may not have flown in court with a traditional divorce. Each divorce is unique, after all, and court rulings are often too “cookie-cutter” for spouses. Divorce mediation fixes this, giving the spouses more control over their agreement.
