Wyoming couples know that the divorce process is complex, emotional and difficult for every member of the family. For your family, however, there could be a better way to walk through the process of ending a marriage. Through mediation, you can resolve your divorce disputes and move on toward a strong post-divorce future in a timely manner.

Mediation is a legal way to resolve complex disputes while maintaining respect and cooperation between parties. This useful option could help divorcing couples who want to go through the process peacefully and avoid the difficulty of litigation. Before you make important decisions for your future or move ahead with divorce, consider the benefits of mediation for your divorce.

What happens during mediation? 

Mediation is a legal process of two contending parties working through issues respectfully through discussions and negotiations. In your mediated divorce proceedings, a neutral third party will oversee the discussions between you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse, helping you reach a reasonable and beneficial final order. 

The job of the mediator is to spur conversations and encourage cooperation between the parties. While you and your spouse do not have to get along on a personal level to make mediation work, both sides have to be willing to work together and commit to the benefits of this process. This could be a smart choice for you and your divorce for the following reasons:

  • Mediation is less stressful and more peaceful than a litigated divorce.
  • Mediation is less expensive than other types of divorces because it takes less time to complete.
  • Mediation leads to more sustainable final orders because it allows for you and your spouse to have more control over the final details of the order.

This form of dispute resolution will not work in every situation, but it could be a smart and beneficial choice for you and your children.

Find out if it is right for you

Mediation is not for everyone, but it could work well for you and your unique family. It is smart to have a complete evaluation of your case and explanation of your legal options before you move forward with major choices that will affect your future.

Divorce is hard, but the process of mediation can make it slightly easier to complete this complicated process. It is smart to fully consider all of your choices before engaging in mediation or another type of divorce process.
