A Denver Divorce Mediation Attorney Explains
Divorce is a tough transition to make for all involved, including spouses and children. It involves hard decisions and hard feelings, including bitterness, resentment, and animosity. Children are often the unwitting victims of divorce warfare, suffering confusion, depression, anger, and other negative emotions. Traditional divorce can become legal warfare between battling spouses, which involve long litigations that are costly, time-consuming, and hostile. A contested divorce leaves less money for you, your spouse, and your children and takes an emotional toll on all involved. Why put yourself and your family through such a stressful, expensive, and negative process? Divorce Mediation is cooperative problem solving with the assistance of a neutral legally and professionally trained professional, who freed from the role of acting as attorney for either party, can help you see through the emotional element of divorce, and often envision options never considered prior to mediation. Without “lawyering up” attitudes clouding the true concerns of the parties, the Mediator provides each party the opportunity to be heard on various issues. Under the guidance of a neutral party, the mediator, negative emotions are more likely to be diffused to make way for practical, reasonable, and fair resolutions. A Denver divorce mediator who is also a trained lawyer can help both parties understand the consequences of their decisions and he can inform them equally of the issues relevant to their situation. Then focusing on the real concerns of each unique situation, the mediator helps the parties explore various approaches to a resolution.
