Mediation Offers You An Alternative To Traditional Divorce

Divorce is a difficult process, but there are options by which an Ohio couple can ease the strain and stress associated with ending a marriage. Through mediation, it is possible to resolve divorce disputes and reach a final resolution that is smart, sustainable and practical. This may be a reasonable alternative to traditional divorce or an acrimonious court battle.

Mediation is a way to resolve disputes that is respectful and focused on meeting both parties’ interests in the outcome. In this process, a neutral mediator guides couples toward resolutions by facilitating conversations and helping with negotiations. Attorney Susan Suriano is a trained Ohio mediator. She works with couples in Columbus and central Ohio and has extensive experience skillfully helping couples navigate complex family law issues and reach sustainable solutions that work for everyone.

Why Choose Mediation?

Mediation is not for everyone, but it could be the right choice for you. This process will work if both parties commit to it and resolve to remain open to conversations. Some of the benefits of opting for mediation include:

  • It’s less time-consuming.
  • It’s less expensive.
  • It minimizes stress for every member of the family.
  • It addresses concerns unique to the parties’ family.
  • There’s less chance of post-divorce conflict.

This option is particularly beneficial for couples that have minor children. It allows you and the other parent to custom-tailor a final resolution that will work best for your family. It also can help you and your spouse lay the foundation for a successful co-parenting relationship after divorce. If mediation is not right for you, there are other options available.
