It might be obvious that if a couple is getting a divorce those individuals probably have a hard time agreeing on many topics. But, just because that was the state of the relationship in the months or years leading up to the divorce doesn't mean that the couple can't attempt to work together in the divorce process to get the legal matters behind them and move on with their lives. This is where divorce mediation can come into play.
The divorce mediation process can help a divorcing couple navigate many of the complicated issues that can come up during the case. Some of the most complicated divorces involve issues related to children from the relationship, or if the couple has significant assets to divide. If the couple can stay focused on what is fair in asset division and what is best for their children, they could work through the divorce mediation process to arrive at agreements that all parties find acceptable.
Of course, it is common for couples to hit snags during the divorce mediation process. At these times, it may be the mediator who is able to make suggestions that can move the case forward; providing options that the divorcing couple may not have considered before. In divorce mediation, it often helps to be a bit creative when it comes to potential solutions.
