What to Keep in Mind During Your Divorce Mediation

We know that preparing for a mediated divorce session can bring up some unpleasant emotions. After all, this isn’t some conference workshop you’re prepping for – it’s the beginning of a process that will end with an uncontested divorce.

Still, it’s important to work through these emotions and take certain steps before your session. We’ve found the following to be very helpful:

  • Perhaps the most important thing you can do is to get yourself in a mental state where you can keep calm during your divorce mediation session. Divorces drag out because the simple arithmetic of a separation gets tangled up with the emotions of dissolving a long-term relationship. Take time to prepare yourself mentally- it’s important you stay calm and focused during your session.
  • Look over your finances and figure out what your financial priorities will be. Our experienced divorce attorney-mediators help with financial matters, but knowing what you expect to need will make things easier.
  • It’s a good idea to have some preliminary discussions about child care issues with your spouse before the session. Our attorney-mediators located in Denver and Chicago understand how important these issues are and work to find a solution that’s best for your child. Still, these issues are so vital that it’s a good idea for you to have at least a general sense of what you both are thinking before the divorce mediation session.
  • Go through a similar process with other pieces of personal property held within the marriage. Make an honest accounting of what matters to you – putting up a fight over a given item just to put a fight is counter-productive.

With the right preparation and attitude, you can expect a calm, productive divorce mediation session and a process that reflects those conditions.
