Divorce Questions and Concerns About The Mediation Process
The divorce mediation process will not be exactly the same each time, as no two disputes are alike. Divorce questions and concerns may arise during mediation. However different or lengthy the dispute, the divorce mediation process typically involves seven different steps. A typical divorce mediation process goes as follows: first meeting, initiate the action, exchange information, gather opinions from neutral experts, negotiate a settlement, independent review, and finalize the settlement.
The Advantages of Divorce Mediation
A divorce through the court process (otherwise known as litigation) can be a time-consuming, emotionally-draining, and expensive process. Because of this, many people are choosing now to divorce through the much faster and less draining divorce mediation process. Through mediation, you and your spouse can retain control over the whole proceeding and the final outcome. Instead of leaving your fate in the hands of a judge, you and your spouse can come to an agreement on your own terms.
