Divorce Mediation Checklist – Is it right for you?
It’s not for everyone but divorce mediation can be cheaper, easier and a overall great option for the *right* couple.
Divorce mediation is a cheaper, more streamlined option to getting divorced. And while it is an incredible option for the right couple, it’s a horrible option for most. So here’s the quick divorce mediation checklist to see if it’s the right option for you:
- No Kids
Is it possible for people with kids to go through a divorce mediation successfully? Yes. It’s possible but very unlikely. Between all the variables and emotions that go along with custody, people with kids are not usually good candidates for divorce mediation.
- Ability to Compromise with Your Ex
Divorce mediation isn’t a magic wand. In order to be successful, you will need to be able to communicate and compromise with your ex. Emotions run raw and it’s completely understandable if you can’t compromise on your own. That’s okay, but if that’s the case you need a lawyer to defend and negotiate on your behalf.
- No Major Assets
Houses, joint business ventures, 401ks, pensions, etc are all major assets that can complicate your divorce. It’s incredibly hard to see clearly during this period and when you have major assets it’s best to rely on the expertise of a divorce attorney.
