Divorce is one of the most exhausting experiences that one can go through during the course of life. This is because separation often comes with its own set of challenges, which lead many couples to end up at loggerheads. Considering how divorce proceedings can easily turn bitter, separating couples may choose to spend some time to think about a divorce through mediation.
In the state of Arizona, it is possible for couples to separate amicably by deciding to obtain a divorce through mediation. As many readers would know, mediation is an alternative dispute resolution technique that is based on a collaborative approach to solve divorce-related matters. The mediation is conducted by a neutral third-party mediator who acts as a communication bridge between the separating spouses and helps them to arrive at a mutual agreement regarding all the matters associated with a divorce.
Separating spouses who have a, more or less, amicable relation and are apprehensive about the hassles of a litigated divorce, but have issues to contest, may find mediation to be a smart choice. This is because mediation allows a divorcing couple to keep divorce-related conflicts in check; to establish foolproof and long-lasting custody, visitation and support agreements; to peacefully come to terms about asset division; and reach a final divorce agreement that is private and both time-effective and cost-effective.
Separating spouses who want an amicable divorce should remember that mediation can often be the most sensible way to end a marriage but it is only possible when both spouses are willing to participate in the mediation and they have the support and guidance of an experienced professional. With the right support and guidance, the oft-contested issues related to a divorce can be resolved while maintaining decorum as well as while maintaining the emotional and financial interests of both the separating spouses.
