Negotiate Your Way To Good Divorce Outcomes

When a couple has decided to end their marriage, life does not have to fall apart. It is hard and there are plenty of challenges. However, the process does not have to turn into a legal war when the real issue is how to get on to a new phase in life.

Most parties wish to avoid a destructive, competitive struggle, but our culture supports the idea that in these situations one party will win and the other will lose. Thus, each party becomes committed to "winning" in the belief that she or he is destined to be a "winner" or "loser." The traditional legal process is automatically looked to as a means of "protecting" oneself against the losing and putting oneself in a position of being able to gain the maximum possible. The importance of maintaining a cooperative working relationship, even when there are children, is forgotten.

Divorce mediation offers quite a different approach to resolving conflicts between the parties. It asserts that, even though the parties have decided they can no longer live together as husband and wife, they believe:

  1. Each person is entitled to full respect as a person
  2. Neither party has an interest in "winning" over the other in terms of money, property, or other conditions of the settlement
  3. Each party is interested in surviving through having his or her needs met to the extent permitted by available resources, and each is equally interested in seeing that the other party's needs are also met.
  4. They both acknowledge that they will continue to provide parenting for their children (if any) even though they will no longer be married to each other.

Parties considering mediation as a means of reaching a settlement are often fearful about having to make decisions about financial matters in which he or she has had little or no previous experience. Part of the role of the mediator is to provide the general information needed to make such decisions and to help explore all the legal and financial issues, options, and consequences. When necessary, the advice of other experts can be sought.

Mediation is a different process that builds on future possibilities while taking care of today's issues. The goal is to get through this challenge in life, allowing you to leave behind that which truly needs to stay in the past. This process also acknowledges the future that will hold many other opportunities.

The choice has been made to move on. Now you can make that choice, one of growth.
