For some couples going through divorce, dividing complex property feels overwhelming and quite scary. And, it can generate so many questions and concerns.
It’s a situation that can be rife with emotional turmoil, uncertainty, and sometimes even anger.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. As a divorce lawyer and mediator who has helped many individuals navigate this difficult process, I can tell you that there is hope.
With mediation, it’s possible to find a way forward that respects everyone’s needs and interests.
Of course, that’s not to say that mediation is easy. It can be a delicate dance, one that requires skilled facilitation and a willingness to listen and empathize with each other’s perspectives. It takes time, patience, and a willingness to compromise.
But the benefits can be enormous. Not only does mediation offer a more collaborative approach to property division, but it can also help minimize the financial and emotional costs of a litigated divorce.
And perhaps most importantly, it can help preserve relationships, especially when children are involved.
So if you’re facing a complex property division in divorce, know that there are options available to you. Mediation may not be the right choice for everyone, but it’s worth exploring.
And with the right support and guidance, it can help you find a way forward that honours your needs and priorities, both now and in the future.
