When divorcing, do I need a mediator to help me?
A mediator can help you and your ex-partner avoid court proceedings and litigation if you’ve decided that your marriage or relationship is over and there is no hope of a reconciliation.
If you are divorcing or separating from your spouse, mediation Archway can be a much more cost-effective and time-saving option.
It is the mediator’s Archway job to help you and your ex-partner resolve all or some of the issues arising from your breakup by providing key legal and other information and practical guidance on the issues that need to be resolved with the backdrop of the law applicable in mind.
Sometimes, other professionals may be engaged as a third-party neutral to support the process and decision making. Pension investments that need to be resolved and agreed upon may necessitate a report on pension sharing and divorce, for example.
Working with a mediator Archway is the best option if you want a divorce that is compassionate, kind, and dignified. When it comes to resolving disputes, mediators are well-versed in conflict resolution techniques, as well as in creating an environment conducive to productive dialogue.
Mediation Archway will help you and your ex-partner maintain a civil and respectful relationship despite the tumultuous circumstances of your divorce. In the event that you have children, this is especially important because you will be able to share space with your child/children on significant occasions such as milestone birthdays and special assemblies as well as sporting events and university visits.
You, your children and future generations will benefit from our efforts to transform divorce from toxic, bitter and twisted into a positive experience if you work together for the greater good.
You can begin the process by filling out a Self-Referral Form and scheduling your first separate Mediation Information & Assessment Meeting (MIAM) online. On top of all these advantages, family mediation Archway is less expensive, less time-consuming, and less stressful than going to court because it allows both parties to remain in control of the process and reach an agreement more quickly than a traditional court process would.
Counseling and mediation Archway are not the same thing.
Many people believe that a mediator is the same as a therapist or a counsellor, and that he or she can help estranged couples reconcile and reunite.
Mediators Archway are not counsellors or therapists; we have similar skills, but we are not trained or qualified to support parties who wish to reconcile and need to explore historical problems and deep-rooted historical issues.
Any time this type of assistance is needed, mediators will direct the parties to the most appropriate therapists and counsellors.
Using a neutral third party, a mediator helps divorcing or divorcing couples stay focused on the future, put aside issues that don’t serve them or their children’s best interests, and, most importantly, make their own decisions about all or some of the issues that have arisen as a result of their split or divorce.
Legal issues relating to the care of their dependent children, such as whether a primary caregiver is needed or if “shared-care” is the best option, will be discussed during mediation Archway sessions, which the parties will agree upon and set the agenda for. How much time will they spend with each of their families? Arrangements for holidays and other special occasions, etc.
Even if the couple does not have any pension assets to divide, they should still think about how they will split up their financial assets, such as the house they share, and any other investments or assets they have, such as pension sharing.
There are many “soft” issues that can be addressed in family mediation Archway, including boundary setting and communication difficulties, which are often more important than the legal issues to the parties.
A mediator may be necessary if you know the relationship/marriage is over. And you want an amicable divorce/separation in which you retain control over the outcomes and do not cede decision-making authority to a Judge.
Please get in touch with us as soon as possible if you’re ready to get started. You and your ex-partner will be encouraged to participate in the process by highlighting the advantages of family mediation Archway, such as a more amicable divorce, lower costs, and the ability to control your own outcomes. If your ex-partner does not want us to contact them at this point, we will.
