When you begin thinking about a divorce, it is hard to anticipate all of the ways your decision will impact you family. It is easy to focus on the months (or years) of unhappiness, the intensity of the conflict and the need to separate to alleviate the stress. Those feelings can be simply overwhelming. AMS Mediation can help you anticipate the effect of your decision to divorce on everyone in your life. When you are able to focus on your future, the impact of divorce can shift from all of the pain to more hope for life after divorce.
Reduce Conflict and Stress with Divorce Mediation
Choosing to settle your divorce using mediation rather than litigation can significantly lessen the overall stress of a divorce on a family. A court battle often increases the conflict surrounding the divorce, pushing a family into a win/lose situation. The divorcing couple ends up pinned against each other and the rest of the family is pushed and pulled back and forth as the conflict builds. Mediation, on the other hand, focuses on solutions, cooperation and collaboration as the two parties work together to find solutions to issues like division of property, child custody, visitation and spousal support. Mediation allows you and your soon to be ex-spouse to make your own decisions about your divorce, rather than leaving these major life decisions in the hands of a judge. Mediation reduces conflict and encourages a model of working together which sets a positive example for your children and the rest of your family.
Mediation is less expensive than litigation and takes significantly less time as well. These two factors alone reduce the stress of a divorce on all family members. If you are looking to protect your family from additional pain related to the divorce process, partner with the team at AMS Mediation.
