No one gets married thinking that the union might end in a divorce, but we all know by now that the reality is that many marriages do end in this manner. While it may seem unfortunate to those who are on the outside looking in, for the couple who is going through the divorce the process may be putting an end to a relationship that simply wasn't working anymore and, therefore, both of the soon-to-be ex-spouses can look forward to another chapter in life.
If a divorcing couple can look at the process as a legal situation that needs to be addressed fully and competently, instead of an emotional brawl, they may be able to work together in divorce mediation instead of fighting out the divorce issues in family law court. Choosing divorce mediation can allow the couple to reap a number of benefits, first and foremost of which is probably owing less in legal fees. However, there are other benefits as well.
A couple who chooses to go through divorce mediation will likely experience less stress throughout the legal process, as they are allowed to give their input in a less formal situation. Working with a mediator allows both sides to forcefully press for the outcomes they would like to see, while at the same time allowing the mediator to point out what may and may not be a fair outcome.
