Making the most of your divorce mediation?

If you and your spouse have decided that divorce is the best option to solve relationship conflict, you may have already considered mediation.

At Gatlin Voelker, PLLC, we have helped many Kentucky couples work through the intricacies of divorce.

Your approach to mediation and the attitude you have can significantly affect how much you get out of deliberations. According to the Huffington Post, there are steps you can take to get the best results from divorce mediation. These include the following:

  • Try to remain objective: When a disagreement is being discussed, do your best to understand where your spouse is coming from and why he or she is reacting a certain way.

  • Practice flexibility: There will undoubtedly be times when you will have to compromise. In these circumstances, practice flexibility and be accepting of alternatives that will be most beneficial to both parties.

  • Be courteous: Rarely is divorce void of heated disagreements. However, your decision to remain courteous and cordial can certainly play in your favor.

  • Remain focused: While it can be easy to go off on tangents or become distracted with petty disagreements, it is important to stay focused on your end goal. Reaching effective resolutions can help you avoid spending unnecessary financial resources and emotional strain on prolonged litigation.
