What to Do When Your Mediation Isn’t Working

mediatation failedGoing through a divorce is one of the hardest things you will ever do. To minimize the mental anguish and emotional strain, you should try to get through the divorce with as little drama, conflict, and trouble as possible. It is for this reason that many divorcing couples choose a mediated settlement.

There are many advantages to using a mediator. One of the most important is that it will save you a great deal of money. Another advantage to using a mediator is the reduction of stress. As you go through your divorce, you must still function in your everyday life. It can be hard to do so if you are at war with your soon-to-be-ex.

If you are used to sitting down and solving practical problems together, if you are both level-headed and reasonable people, then you should use these traits to your advantage. You can bring them to bear in a mediated settlement and save time and money.

The Breakdown of Mediation

Mediation is a difficult process that is filled with moments of tension, doubt, and uncertainty. However, it is a process. And most professional Indianapolis family attorneys try to transform the respective persons—or at least their perspectives—in order to achieve an equitable outcome and agreement.

Mediation is not a court of law. Mediators are neither judges nor arbiters; their words and deeds do not have the force of law. Indianapolis family attorneys work to facilitate the efforts of the two parties. In other words, the bulk of the work must still be done by you and your ex. If there is a deterioration in the sessions, if your mediation reaches a point where it is not working, you always have the option of backing out and seeking legal counsel.
