Prioritizing Your Child In Divorce Mediation
The welfare and future of your child is a top concern during a divorce. As a loving parent, you want to ensure that your child gets the best nurturing despite you and your spouse’s separation.There are often, however, parenting matters that divorcing parents don’t agree on. To resolve these matters with your spouse and to make the best decisions for your child, divorce mediation is highly recommended.
Parenting And Your Child’s Best Interests: Advantages Of Divorce Mediation
The impact of divorce impacts a child’s life immensely, so you want the process to be as peaceful as possible and to produce ideal results. Mediated divorce is proven to provide these benefits, making it a more preferable option than traditional litigated divorce.
- You decide for your child.In a litigated divorce, it is normally up to the judge to decide on disputed matters such as child custody and child support. This means that the future of your child would be in the hands of someone else instead of the parents. By contrast, divorce mediation allows you and your spouse to make decisions for your young one. As a parent, you know your child best and deserve to choose the best outcomes for him or her.
- Less stress for your child. We know many traditional divorce cases that turned ugly and caused problems for the children who were caught in between. On the other hand, studies have repeatedly shown that mediated divorce minimizes the emotional or psychologicalstress on children. This is largely because mediation lessens the hostilities between the parents through calm and amicable discussions.
- Sound decision-making.Emotions often rise when divorcing parents argue about their children. An independent, professional mediator helps keep parenting discussions calm and rational. Additionally, a mediator who is knowledgeable in family law can provide sound guidance on what would be legally best for your child, today and in the long-term future.
- Fair and equitable agreement.Child-related issues in traditional divorce often turn into bitter, expensive legal battles. Here, the party with the better lawyer gets the more favorable arrangements. But with mediation, you and your spouse work together for results that satisfy both of you, especially when you both aim for your child’s best interests. This way, you don’t have to worry about the other party taking advantage of your situation, and vice versa.
