Tips To Succeed In Mediation | Dads Divorce | Divorce Tips

One of the biggest concerns guys have when
they’re about to go through divorce is how much it all is going to cost. It’s tough to give an estimate on what the
final cost of a divorce is going to be because every case is different. But depending on how many issues you have
to sort out, it can range anywhere from $4,000 to $15,000 or more. There are, however, some ways you can keep
costs down and one of the most effective cost-cutting strategies is going through mediation. Although you still have to pay for mediation
sessions, the cost-saving bonus of resolving disputed issues often far outweighs the mediator’s
fees. Cordell & Cordell family law attorney Dana
Lauer says the key to a successful mediation session is adopting the appropriate mind set. I think that the most important thing is to
keep an open mind. The great thing about mediation is that you
have multiple attorneys in the room and both parties are in the room and somebody might
have an idea that you never thought of before, an idea that helps you accomplish your goals
and allows them to accomplish their goals too. So I think the most important thing is to
be in a compromising state where you’re open to new ideas and really willing to consider
them. Not only can mediation save you money, but
it can also help smooth things out between you and your ex moving forward when you’re
working together to co-parent. One of the big benefits is the reduction of
attorney fees in the future as well as reduced animosity between you and your wife. Especially if you have children and you’re
going to be moving forward in a co-parenting relationship, reducing that animosity is really,
really beneficial to not just the husband and wife but certainly to the children. For more articles on how to succeed in mediation,
