If the time has come to file for divorce, you know that there are many key steps you need to take in the days, weeks and months to come. Like most, you want to put the divorce process in the past as quickly as possible.
While there are times when you have no choice but to meet your former partner in court, there’s nothing wrong with considering the benefits of divorce mediation. In fact, many have found that this is the best way to work out their problems in a more affordable and time efficient manner.
The benefits of divorce mediation include:
— More cost effective than a traditional divorce. — The ability to save time. — The opportunity for both people to be heard. — You put the process in your own hands, as opposed to relying solely on a judge. — You and your spouse can hash out details related to property division, child custody and other family law issues.
