What is Traditional Mediation?

Puzzle with puzzle piece that says mediation

A litigated divorce court process is adversarial and filled with tension, distress, time and a great deal of expense to all involved. It often leaves the family unit in tatters.

When you choose a collaborative divorce or the traditional mediation process, you and your spouse can resolve your differences amicably and peacefully, which will leave your family unit intact.

When a couple enters into traditional mediation, a neutral professional mediator works with the couple to create a dialogue that find ways to deal with their marital conflict.  This type of dialogue replaces the adversarial atmosphere of the court system with one that focuses on cooperative problem solving.

The mediator will attempt to encourage negotiations between the married couple which is contrary to litigation and arbitration where you lose control of the decision-making process.

The mediator guides the couple to reach an amicable agreement by understanding each other’s issues and needs.  Mediations are held in a neutral location with the purpose of resolving all issues pertaining to the divorce.

By working through their differences using traditional mediation, couples can avoid long drawn out and costly court-litigated divorces.

When you enter into a traditional mediation divorce process, the mediator ensures all of your documents are drafted and filed in compliance with the laws of your filing state which results in you obtaining a legal divorce.
