Divorce is a difficult transition for any couple, but it is especially tough when the process is contentious and important decisions are left in the hands of a third party. One of the best ways to make divorce a bit easier is to agree on a peaceful and respectful process. Divorce mediation makes this possible.
Divorce mediation in Connecticut provides an opportunity for the divorcing couple to take control of their circumstances. They discuss their options and come to an agreement on how best to end their marriage. Everything from the sale of a home, to the division of other assets, to child custody and various forms of support are discussed in mediation. The goal is to create a custom solution that works for everyone involved.
Obviously, it can be tough for two people ending a marriage to agree on much of anything, which is why the mediator is such an important part of the divorce mediation process. Mediators are third party facilitators that keep the process focused and respectful. They have no say in the final outcome of the mediation, but they do encourage couples to discuss the pros and cons of different options, and explore a variety of outcomes, making it easier to come to terms with the best possible scenario for everyone.
