How can mediation reduce divorce stress




Whether you are currently going through a divorce or you are just getting ready to start the process, you know first-hand that the process can be stressful and overwhelming. This is especially true for children who are also going through the divorce with you and your spouse. Studies show that children often show internal and external signs of stress when their parents are terminating their marriage. There are ways, however, that you can reduce the stressful effect that your divorce may have on your kids.

When compared to traditional courtroom litigation, mediation is often less stressful for everyone involved. You and your spouse are able to meet, under the direction of a neutral mediator, and negotiate the terms of your divorce. Mediation is less confrontational, more laid-back and allows parents to work together to come up with a settlement that best meets the needs of the children. In many cases, parents who undergo mediation are able to experience a more amicable relationship following the divorce than they would have if they had undergone heated courtroom litigation.

Positive interactions and better post-divorce relationships can have a direct effect on children. When parents get along, children are more likely to spend a significant amount of time with both parents. This leads to better academic performance, less behavioral problems and a stronger support group for kids. When children see a healthy interaction between their parents, they are more likely to have positive relationships in the future as well.
