Most Tennesee spouses going through a divorce will have moments when they feel like they’re not getting along with their soon-to-be ex. These moments — which could even involve fighting, anger and raised voices — can be enough to discourage anyone from wanting to sit down at a mediation table with their spouse. However, even if you’re not getting along with your spouse, mediation might be an excellent way to navigate your divorce proceedings diplomatically.
Let’s take a look at the different factors that could indicate that mediation is right for you and your spouse:
— Both of you are on board with the divorce process and neither party is resistant to the idea.
— You can see the potential that you and your spouse could work through your challenges and even be friendly with one another.
— You want to keep on good terms with your spouse for the sake of your children.
— You don’t blame your spouse for the breakdown of your marital relationship.
— Both you and your spouse understand the financial facets of your relationship, and you don’t suspect that your spouse is trying to cheat you.
— You think your spouse is being truthful with you.
— You’re capable of asserting your agenda without turning your spouse into a bad person.
— No domestic violence, no drugs and no alcohol were problems in your marriage.
— You can come to an agreement on child care and custody questions.
If you answered yes to the above questions, then the divorce mediation process could be the best way for you and your spouse to resolve your divorce. By speaking with your divorce lawyer about mediation, you can learn how this peaceful negotiation process can save you money, time and a great deal of stress during the dissolution of your marriage.
