Many people believe that mediation is only for amicable divorces, or that it’s not an effective option for high-conflict cases. But the truth is, there are a lot of myths out there about divorce mediation that simply aren’t true.
One of the biggest myths is that divorce mediation is only for couples who get along well. In reality, mediation can be a highly effective option even for couples with high levels of conflict. In fact, a skilled mediator can help facilitate productive communication and problem-solving, even when emotions are running high.
Some believe that mediation is a quick fix, and that all issues can be resolved in just a few sessions. While mediation can be way more efficient than going through the court system, it’s important to remember that the process can take time.
Lastly, some people believe that mediation means giving up control and agreeing to whatever the other party wants.
But in reality, mediation is a process where both parties have a say in the outcome. The mediator serves as a neutral third-party to guide the conversation and facilitate a mutually agreeable resolution.
Don’t let these myths hold you back from considering divorce mediation. With the help of a professional mediator, you can work towards a more amicable and efficient divorce, even in high-conflict situations!
