Divorce mediation can be extremely effective if both parties are making an honest effort to take part in the process.
In this issue, the San Diego divorce attorneys with the Men’s Legal Center will give you the tips for grounding yourself so that mediation efforts stand more of a chance of being successful.
How to Find Your Voice During Divorce Mediation
- Know what you’re trying to resolve.
Whether its custody, support, or asset division, take the time before your mediation to write down your thoughts on the subjects to be addressed during your sessions. This help you remain focused and can be used to ground yourself if you become confused.
- Establish your goals and share them with the mediator.
Your mediator is a neutral party whose primary job is to help you and your spouse or partner reach an amicable decision. By being able to keep your wants at the forefront of your mind and sharing them with the mediator, the sessions are more likely to keep moving forward smoothly.
- Think about how a court would resolve the issue.
If you and your spouse or partner have hit a roadblock during mediation, think about how a court judge would resolve things. While your mediator will not be able to tell you exactly how the judge will act, their advice on hypothetical outcomes in court can help you keep your eyes on all of your legal options.
