Westport Divorce Mediation Assistance

Sadly, almost half of all first marriages and more than half of all second marriages in the US will end in divorce.  While there is little evidence that current divorce statistics will change, there are alternatives to a long, drawn-out messy divorce court proceeding.  Westport divorce mediation is available to divorcing couples wanting to find a more cooperative and less adversarial method of maneuvering through the divorce process.  If you think you may be interested in Westport divorce mediation, contact a local divorce mediator for a consultation.

Divorce mediation is a voluntary and confidential alternative dispute resolution procedure where a neutral third-party mediator assists divorcing couples in their attempts to settle any issues related to their marriage.  How to divide the marital assets and debts, determinations related to spousal support, child custody and visitation as well as child support can all be decided through the use of mediation.  Guided by an experienced divorce mediator, divorcing couples determine the outcome of their marital settlement agreement themselves, rather than leaving their future in the hands of the court.

Aside from the fact that mediation is less expensive and less time consuming than a litigated divorce, there are important emotional issues that divorce mediation is better equipped to handle.  Since mediation is a non-adversarial process, it does not exacerbate any existing tensions or negativity between the divorcing parties like a litigated divorce does.  This makes for a more cooperative and amicable divorce, which is always better than a nasty one, especially when there are children involved.
