Conscious Uncoupling Through Divorce Mediation In Everett And Snohomish County
Recent buzz surrounding Hollywood couples that have chosen a cooperative and harmonious means to dissolve a marriage makes “conscious uncoupling” seem like a brand new concept. In reality, this approach to divorce proceedings has been around for a long time. It is called divorce mediation.

Is Conscious Uncoupling (Divorce Mediation) A Legitimate Option For My Divorce?
Not every couple will be able to use alternative dispute resolution to finalize their divorce agreements, but far too few even consider the option. If you take a moment to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of litigation versus mediation, you will likely be drawn to the cost-effectiveness, efficiency and less stressful nature of divorce mediation.
You may be able to pursue this or collaborative law for your divorce if you and your spouse:
- Have a relatively amicable relationship. You understand that each individual needs to move forward financially stable while preserving important relationships (like that with his or her child) to the fullest extent possible.
- Are both willing to explore mediation as an option. You cannot force another party into mediation. Both individuals must be willing to participate and focus on productive negotiations as opposed to contentious arguments.
If you have questions, we are available to answer them. Our team will exhaust every effort to help you find the most effective way through this difficult time in your life.
