In the past couple of blog posts, we discussed some of the different things that can come into the picture during the property division process of a divorce. If you recall, we briefly touched on how you and your ex might be able to work together to determine how things are divided. This is done through divorce mediation, and we can help you as you go through that process.

Some people who are going through a divorce are concerned about the mediation process. In actuality, this process doesn't have to be too difficult. The biggest thing that you have to remember is that being willing to compromise can make all of the difference in the process.

Mediation can be a wonderful tool for couples going through a divorce. It provides them more control over the situation and helps them reach an agreement in a cooperative atmosphere instead of the adversarial setup of the trial process. Mediation isn't just reserved for those who are able to communicate well with their soon-to-be ex and can be especially helpful for those who have trouble articulating their expectations.

While mediation is often faster than the traditional divorce process, it's not a lightning fast process. Just like it takes time and planning to put together a wedding, a divorce agreement must also be drafted and revised with care. Over the course of the mediation, it's normal to need three to four sessions, lasting an average of two hours each.
