When mediation is helpful in the divorce process

We All Need A Champion

Michigan couples may believe that going to court is the only way to resolve their divorce. However, it may be possible to resolve some or all outstanding issues by going to see a mediator. This may be true even if a divorce is an uncontested one. In some cases, divorces can become uncontested after mediation.

One of the best reasons to go to mediation is that each person is in control of what is discussed. Furthermore, each person is in control of the scope of any settlement that is reached during a session. Going to mediation may also be beneficial because it costs less asking for a judge to resolve a divorce dispute. Finally, resolving a divorce through mediation may be best because the results of a mediation session remain confidential. Anything resolved in court is generally made a matter of public record.

It is important for an individual to remember that there is no requirement to come to an agreement during a mediation session. Instead, it simply serves as an option that allows both parties to speak freely in an effort to resolve their differences. Parents may find that it is easier to shield their children from some or all of the negative consequences of divorce by resolving it outside of court.

Mediation may have many benefits for those who are willing to be open and honest about what they need after a divorce. If an agreement is reached during mediation, it is advisable to have it reviewed by an attorney prior to signing it. This is because most settlement agreements become legally binding once they are approved.
