Helping You Move Forward with Dignity

If you have been thinking about getting a divorce, you are most likely experiencing a lot of difficult emotions. Even though you may be settled that dissolving the marriage between you and your spouse is the necessary step, the process may feel so frustrating and complicated that you are inclined to be overwhelmed by just the legal aspects alone. Add to this the stress of the financial burdens which come through expensive trials in court, which may bring more anxiety when you should instead be working to move on with your new life.

Fortunately, there is a way to avoid the frustrating, costly, and lengthy traditional course of going to court. When you get in touch with our mediation lawyers in Omaha, you can benefit from having a smoother and quicker transition of the entire process. Hathaway Law Group, P.C.

How Mediation Works in a Divorce Case

A mediated divorce is about you, your spouse, and the decision the two of you have made to be in control of your future. In a mediated divorce, you do not need to appear before a judge, but rather will work out an agreement to the terms of your divorce with the help of a mediator. It is important to remember the mediator is a “neutral third party” and will not advise nor guide either of you. The mediator will help guide you and your spouse when you need help or ideas to resolve your issues, but the mediator will not solve those issues for you.

During mediation, the couple will work out agreements between them on issues such as property, custody, parenting plans, and all other matters that need resolution before a final settlement is realized. Some of these agreements will come easily, but others will require working through challenging terrain. It is essential that the mediator be able to keep lines of communication open between you and your spouse, facilitate “brainstorming” ideas to help you reach creative solutions, and keep the dialogue positive and moving toward your goal of a complete and final agreement. The mediator’s involvement will limit, if not eliminate, arguing, name-calling, and bad behavior that merely undermines a peaceful resolution.

Benefits of Mediation

There are many reasons why so many clients are opting for mediation, as opposed to taking the traditional route of going to court.

A few of the advantages that mediation offers include:

  • Potentially, lower costs of legal fees, since you and your spouse are attempting to find a resolution to your issues and not paying attorneys to negotiate for you.
  • A speedier process, since divorces can take many months or years to finalize, while mediation progresses at the speed you set.
  • Potentially more privacy to your marital issues.
  • A smoother and less stressful process for both spouses.
