Divorce is always tricky, particularly when spouses can’t agree on vital issues like child custody, finances, and property division. However, when spouses agree on these issues, divorce mediation is the best option rather than battling it out in court. When spouses decide to go about divorce mediation, they should be prepared to avoid wasting time and ensure they get a favorable outcome. How can spouses prepare for this process? According to the narrator in the video, one of the ways spouses can prepare for mediation is by studying their financial situation.
Spouses should review documents beforehand and ask their attorneys any questions they may have before the mediation process commences.
The second way spouses can prepare for divorce mediation is mental preparation. Even the most amicable divorces can’t be finalized in a day because the mediator needs to check all documents presented. Therefore, spouses should be mentally prepared for a grueling process.
The third way spouses can prepare for mediation is by preparing for disagreements. Divorces have many areas of contention, such as child custody and support, financial support, and property division. As a result, during mediation, disputes will arise, and couples should be ready to compromise to facilitate the success of this process.
