Family Mediation Makes Divorce & Child Custody Less Painful
Many people describe the period of time in which they were going through the motions of their divorce to be the worst days of their life. This period of time brings intense emotional pain that can actually have physical ramifications.
Many people find they cannot sleep, have difficulty eating proper meals, and feel always on the verge of tears. While this may be completely normal for people in the middle of an intense divorce battle, it doesn't have to be that way for everyone. There is no way to avoid the emotional pain that comes with splitting your family up and officially becoming divorced, but you know that everything would be easier if you could just avoid the drawn-out, intense court process, right?
Family mediation allows you to do just that! Rather than fighting it out to the bitter end with your spouse in court you can agree to hire a family mediator who will sit down with you both and try to peacefully come to an agreement on all issues involved with the divorce. From splitting up real estate to fighting over who gets the kids Christmas morning, a family mediator is skilled in working out the differences so you don't have to discuss it in court. This is beneficial to everyone involved, but it's especially beneficial to your children. They are feeling the intensity of the divorce ten times more than anyone else and they will be thankful if you get it done as quickly and amicably as possible.
If you want to reduce the pain on them as much as possible you do several things:
Keep disagreements and fights away from them.
Swallow the bitterness so they don't have to hear it.
Never put them in the middle or ask them to choose a parent.
These things are much harder to do for your children when you are going through an intense court battle. When you use family mediation you can get all of the difficult negotiations and arguments out of the way quickly. Rather than stretching it out and putting everyone through continual pain, you can get to the bottom of all the tough issues and move on. Since you get to quickly work out disagreements without dragging it through the court system you can move on with your children and put it behind you much faster.
Things are going to be very different after the divorce and a lot of confusion is going to come for you and the kids, but at least you don't have to struggle with a difficult divorce in order to start moving forward with your life. Some people think that family mediation won't work for them because their issues are too difficult or too hard to handle outside of court or without the objective view of a judge.
It's important to realize here that a family mediator is just as objective and knowledgeable as a judge in these cases. They will be able to see to the heart of each issue and look at the bigger picture of the divorce without the emotional attachments and grudges that you and your spouse filter the issues through. Literally anyone can benefit from family mediation. It is the easiest, fastest, and most emotionally rewarding way to get through a divorce and move on with your new life. Trust a mediation company to help you with your case.
