What You Need to Know About Mediated Divorce in Nassau County

When a couple gets divorced, it is often the case that they cannot agree on the terms of their divorce. Unfortunately, when a couple enters the contested divorce process, their assets are very often subjected to equitable distribution, which means that the court will essentially determine who gets which assets through litigation. The litigation process is oftentimes a contentious one, and in many cases, it can be dragged out for months on end. Not only is litigation time-consuming, but it is also expensive. For this very reason, many divorcing spouses wonder if there is another way. Fortunately, in certain cases, there is. If you are someone who is looking to get a divorce but want a more civil, agreeable way to do it, there is a very good chance that divorce mediation may be your best option. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Nassau County divorce mediator to learn more about mediated divorce why it may be the best fit for you.

What are the benefits of a mediated divorce?

To start, the purpose of divorce mediation is to hire an unbiased third-party mediator who will work to facilitate productive conversation between both spouses to hopefully reach a compromise on their divorce terms. Also, a mediated divorce is conducted outside of the courtroom setting. Not only does this de-escalate the tension, but it also means that your divorce will not become part of the public record, which is a huge benefit to those who want to keep their privacy. Additionally, when a couple enters divorce mediation, it means that they agree to compromise and work together to achieve an agreement that works for them both. This cooperation makes the terms of their divorce far easier for them to accept. Finally, you should also understand that in many cases, mediation can also benefit your children, as it is far easier for them to see their parents reach a civil agreement, rather than hash out divorce proceedings in court.
