When you think about a divorce, you may assume that once the terms are settled and the divorce is final, your interactions with your ex will be over. For the most part, that is the case. Divorce is the end of your marriage and that signals changes in your daily life, living situation and financial ties. However, your relationship with your ex may not disappear entirely when you sign those divorce papers. If you share children, you will quickly find that you need to continue to communicate with your ex about decisions related to co-parenting. As a result, conflict after divorce is often a reality.
How To Change A Divorce Agreement
Mediation can be an ideal way to manage the conflict that you face even after your divorce is final. There is no way to predict all of your needs and all of the changes that will occur after your divorce. It is impossible to write a divorce agreement that takes into account all of the issues that will come up in subsequent years. However, mediation gives you the opportunity to resolve these issues, or even major conflict, without having to go through the court system. You can save time and money and find a resolution that works best for you. You can use mediation multiple times when things come up and never have to worry about another court battle.
For most co-parents, making sure that your children are thriving is the most important thing after a divorce. Mediation allows you to adjust your custody agreement to meet the changing needs of your kids. Being able to adapt is very important as kids grow up and have different interests and different educational, physical and social needs.
