Getting to Know Mediation Services
To learn a bit more about my divorce mediation approach and how I can be helpful for your specific circumstances, you are welcome to call or email me.
We can arrange a 15-minute phone call where I will listen to your situation and discuss with you how I can help you and your spouse achieve the most straightforward divorce possible. Through divorce mediation, you and your spouse will have a neutral third party to facilitate negotiations and create a more collaborative environment. In my experience, this often leads to both sides coming to easier agreements.
When you enlist divorce mediation services, you and your spouse will typically have a better chance of settling the most important matters of your marriage, such as the arrangements for your children, division of assets and debts, spousal maintenance and more.
During mediation, you’ll work through a series of discussions and negotiations until both sides are satisfied with the agreement. By putting your positive energy into mediation sessions, you might even notice reduced stress levels (an unexpected but welcome side effect often reported by my clients).
Figure Out What You Need
Anytime that you are planning to participate in the mediation process, it’s important that you come prepared with a checklist of what you hope to achieve from the negotiations.
This way, you’re able to figure out your top priorities and what issues have some wiggle room. During a mediation session, you can then speak clearly and honestly about what’s most important to you moving forward.
If you have children together, learning to better communicate and compromise during mediation also gets you on the road to mending your relationship to the point that you can co-parent productively.
I have also had clients seek out family counseling to help them heal and adjust to the changes that they’re going through. Beyond mediation, there are many ways to promote a more amicable divorce. It’s all about what you need and what works for you.
Hire an Experienced Divorce Mediator
Finally, you need to make sure that you hire an experienced divorce mediator, someone that you feel will listen and provide the guidance you need at every step.
There are many mediation companies out there, but you need to ensure they have the right credentials. You’ll want such important matters to be handled by a professional with the skills for such a task.
In this regard, you’re welcome to contact me at Elizabeth Henson, Attorney Mediator, P.C. I am a family law attorney who left the courtroom in 2001 to offer couples a more amicable option and a more reasonable cost. Over the years, I have successfully conducted thousands of mediations, providing both education and guidance while enabling my clients to take control of their futures.
