Divorce Mediation Statement for Sister Alma
Divorce mediation provides separating and/or divorcing parties with a cost-effective and peaceful way to resolve their differences. The parties and mediator work together to deal with the consequences of either party’s desire to separate and/or divorce. The mediation process focuses the parties on their commonality of interest; whether it be the children, avoidance of the cost and acrimony of litigation, desire to remain friendly and civil to one another after the divorce, etc. Mediation provides an environment where the parties can work together to come to solutions, rather than allegations; the parties discuss their actual needs rather than their ego-driven positions. Mediation provides the parties; the two people best equipped to make these decisions, with the opportunity to civilly discuss and hopefully resolve issues of child custody, parenting time, child support, alimony and the equitable distribution of property without having to “win” and/or hurt one another; divorce mediation is the peaceful, child-centered way to divorce. Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall mediate, not litigate.
