Which issues are covered in divorce mediation?

It’s difficult for most people to work through divorce with their ex-spouse. Whether the separation has you feeling resentful, heart-broken, relieved or all of the above, it’s easy for these emotions to permeate negotiations — oftentimes making agreements more difficult to reach.

Choosing to work through your divorce by using the mediation method can be a faster, more inexpensive way to finalize your settlement.

Mediation introduces a third party to the discussion to help guide you and your ex-spouse through divorce settlement negotiations. Mediators are often experts, such as appraisers, accountants, pediatricians, financial planners and attorneys. Sessions are scheduled and structured, so that the process is efficient as possible.

The following include examples of the divorce matters that will be discussed in these sessions:

  • Division of property (assets/liabilities)
  • Child custody and parenting time (visitation)
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Retirement/insurance plans
  • Taxes

Once an agreement is signed, it becomes enforceable. The agreement may also be filed with the court. If your mediator is an attorney, the attorney can help fill out this paperwork with the court, including the dissolution of marriage action and disclosure documents.

Both parties should obtain independent lawyers to consult for legal advice during the mediation process and to help review the agreement before it is signed.

If you will be divorcing, contact a lawyer to seek mediation services or learn more about other divorce issues, such as property division, spousal support, child support and more.
