As a couple in Michigan going through a divorce, you will have numerous hurdles to cross before finalizing the divorce itself. Whether or not you can agree on these matters will decide if your divorce will be contested or uncontested.
Fortunately, you can use tools to help you achieve an uncontested divorce. Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines mediation as an independent or third party’s intervention between two or more other conflicting parties with the aim of helping those parties reach reconciliation.
In terms of divorce, mediation is a tool used for divorcing couples to help them reach agreements on important matters like child custody, spousal support, alimony payments, and how to divide both debts and assets. Divorce mediators are the neutral third party that steps in to act as referees when couples discuss what they both want out of the divorce.
A divorce mediator can be a useful tool because of their status as a neutral party. They have a perspective on the divorce that you, your spouse, or any of your friends or family may have. They can provide similar bias-free viewpoints as a court but they do not have to rush through many cases, so they have a chance to get to know you and your case personally.
