Divorce mediation is a process where both parties involved in the case meet with a third party to try and work out an amicable resolution to the case. Divorce mediation can be done by a court-appointed mediator, a private investigator, or even both. All of these options have their own advantages and disadvantages, and the decision about which to use really depends on the particular case that you are dealing with. The most common type of divorce mediation in the United States is called pre-divorce.
In this type of mediation, both parties are involved in the case and are asked to take a look at what’s going on in their lives and what the future looks like. Often there will also be some type of evaluation regarding how things are going for each person, and how to move forward after the divorce. While this is a very effective way to work out a deal, it’s not ideal for everyone, as this type of mediation can be very painful for one party.
There are three other common types of divorce mediation that have been around for many years. The first is known as a civil court mediation, where the two parties meet in the courthouse to discuss what the final divorce will look like. This method tends to be the least desirable, as the parties are forced to sit through a lengthy trial, which can be emotionally and financially draining for both parties. Both parties will need to have their cases heard in this manner, and it’s usually the case that the judge in question is the mediator in the case.
Divorce mediation can be done on your own, using a professional service, or it can be done on the same day that you meet with your mediator. If you choose to work through your own divorce mediator, you’ll probably find that they’re more willing to help you negotiate the details of the case and come up with a better settlement than if you were going to go through a mediator.
Divorce mediation can also be used in a case where the divorcing spouses are not going to be able to reach an agreement between themselves. Sometimes a judge will not allow one spouse to have a divorce, because the parties involved are not capable of working out an amicable settlement on their own.
Another common divorce mediation is what is called a ‘no fault’ divorce, in which both parties agree with the terms of the divorce without a fight, but are unable to come to an agreement over child custody issues. If you’re going through this type of mediation, you will not be able to make any concessions, and neither will the other party. – this is not the type of divorce where the judge makes a decision regarding who will get custody of the children, or what the property should be divided. It is simply a case where the two people decide what their relationship should look like after the divorce.
In a typical no fault divorce, both parties are bound by a written contract, which spells out the terms of the divorce and stipulates how much time the divorce will last, what is fair (or unfair) child custody and who is responsible for paying alimony and spousal support. You can choose to have a lawyer help you with this type of case if you want to. If you’re dealing with a divorce lawyer, they may have a number of options available to you, depending on the state where you live.
Divorce mediation is a good way to help you to work out a settlement if you’re going through a messy divorce, but you should be very cautious when choosing to use it. While it can be very effective, it can also be painful for one party or the other.
