Using divorce mediation to your advantage

As you stare your divorce in the face, you are becoming more concerned about how this significant change in your relationship could alter your life's future. Mediation is a valuable tool that you can use to your advantage if you understand how your decisions will impact your outcome. At the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC, we are committed to helping people in Ohio to work through the process of separating from their spouse.

How to create a parenting plan through mediation

Whether you are currently filing for divorce or you are simply considering terminating your marriage, there are many things to consider, especially when there are children involved. One of the most important plans included in your divorce settlement is your child custody arrangement. Children who are forced to go through a divorce and deal with their parents separating may have difficulties when it comes to adjusting to this big change in life. Yet, you may be able to minimize the overwhelming feelings by creating a solid parenting plan.

How do children of different ages react to parents' divorce?

Because every family is different, divorce affects each family, and each member of the family, differently. If you are an Ohio parent involved in divorcing your spouse, you may have questions as to how your children will react to the divorce. 

How mediation can help you achieve joint custody

At the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC, in Ohio, we find that growing numbers of divorcing couples today prefer mediation to litigation. One of the biggest reasons for this preference is that mediation offers couples a far more amicable way to divorce. Another big reason is that mediation allows a couple numerous options to arrive at customized negotiated solutions that precisely fit their own situation.

What is gray divorce?

If you have been married for decades and are past the age of 50 years old, you may think that you are safe from a divorce. A study conducted by Bowling Green University found a rise in the number of people who are filing for divorce over the age of 50. The trend is known as gray divorce, and it has grown significantly over the years. The Census Bureau’s American Community Survey reports that while 2.8 percent of Americans over the age of 50 filed for divorce 50 years ago, 11.8 percent filed in 2000 and 15.4 percent were divorce in 2011. The divorce rate in people over the age of 50 jumped from one in ten in 1990 to one in four in 2011.

Mediation can offer benefits after a divorce, as well

Like many Ohio residents, you might think mediation is employed only when going through a divorce, to mitigate the contention and cost that often come with divorce. However, as we at the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC, are aware, the potential benefits of mediation can encompass all types of conflict, including the conflicts you are likely to encounter in the years following your divorce as you co-parent your children.

Escaping domestic violence can be complicated

At the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC, we understand that it can be difficult for anyone to file for divorce, regardless of the circumstances. For Ohio residents who are trapped in abusive marriages, their situations may seem hopeless. You should understand that although it may be hard to leave your abuser, it is possible with the right support system and an escape plan.

Will you pay manimony when you divorce?

If your profession or job earns you a high income in Ohio, it may shock you to discover that you are at risk for paying your husband spousal support when you divorce. As wife.org explains, manimony, the newly coined nickname for spousal support paid by an ex-wife to an ex-husband, represents a growing trend across the country.

Mediated vs. collaborative divorce: What’s the difference?

If your Ohio marriage appears on the verge of breaking up, you likely dread the prospect of a lengthy, expensive and acrimonious litigated divorce. However, you and your spouse have two additional options: a mediated divorce and a collaborative divorce. Both are out-of-court processes whereby you and your spouse negotiate together to resolve your own differences rather than leaving it up to a judge to determine how you will live your respective post-divorce lives.
