For decades, if not longer, married couples have found ways to end their marriages. Not long ago, divorcing one’s spouse required a great deal of effort, time, and energy, and often proved to be cost prohibitive. There were many reasons it was so difficult. The church strongly discouraged the practice and gave their blessing only in rare circumstances. Our society has historically frowned on divorce, believing that the vows taken should be eternal, even when there are extenuating circumstances, which could include relationship violence, infidelity, and other forms of deception. As the perception of divorce has changed over time, Johnson Mediation has worked to make it easier to finalize a divorce.
Benefits Of Divorce Mediation
There are times when a couple decides they will be better off apart than together. This is never truer than when a married couple has children who are failing to thrive in one way or another because of an unhealthy marriage. Johnson Mediation prioritizes the well-being of children of divorcing parents. We believe that children should be able to live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. Divorce is a stress that challenges a child’s ability to achieve happiness, healthiness, and fulfillment. As a result, divorcing parents with children who work with us to settle the terms of their divorce can feel confident in our commitment to help resolve the issues between the adults in the family so that the impact on their children is minimized.
Divorce mediation comes with other benefits too. Divorce used to be extremely difficult, expensive, and often more stressful than remaining in the marriage. Working with a divorce mediator, however, helps by identifying issues where you can find agreement, or at least the possibility of compromise. When you identify issues you can agree on, the stress level often decreases quickly. Even those couples who find it nearly impossible to agree on the simplest of things begin to see that it is in their best interest to compromise. This happens in part because of the mediator’s commitment to honesty, openness and forward thinking. With one or two resolved issues under their belts, the couple often approaches the remaining issues with more openness and readiness to reach a positive resolution.
