Divorce Mediation Archives

Is mediating your divorce a good idea?

One of the most emotionally challenging aspects of getting divorced is feeling helpless, as though you lack control over your situation and your life in general. This is why divorce mediation has increased in popularity over the past few years. Through mediating your divorce in the state of Washington, you and your soon-to-be ex can plan your own lives and feel more in control of what happens to you both following the dissolution of your marriage.

Mediation: a more amicable choice for your divorce

Not every Washington couple that makes the decision to divorce will do so acrimoniously. Some divorces can be quite amicable, and when two parties are able to cooperate, the ability to work together can save quite a bit of time and money. If you wish to avoid the cost and stress of litigation, consider the many benefits to employing mediation to resolve disputes.

Divorce mediation: The first step to successful co-parenting

If you and your spouse have children together and have decided to divorce, it is important to understand that your relationship will not end simply because your marriage does. Instead, it will be transformed into a different type of relationship in which you function as co-parents rather than spouses. One way to help get your co-parenting relationship off to a good start is by settling your divorce through the mediation process instead of through traditional litigation.

Why "conscious uncoupling" might be best for your divorce

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her Coldplay-frontman husband Chris Martin made waves earlier this year when they announced their intention to – "consciously uncouple" (aka "divorce"). Though divorce in Hollywood is nothing new, nor is it exactly newsworthy around the country, with an average of 50 percent of first marriages ending, the method by which Paltrow and Martin plan to split has garnered headlines across the country.
