What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation is an effective way to resolve divorce conflicts. In divorce mediation, you, your spouse, and a mediator – a neutral third party – will meet to discuss and resolve issues so that your marriage can end amicably. It is important to note that, unlike a judge, a mediator won’t make any decisions for you; mediators only serve as facilitators to help you and your spouse figure out the best outcome. You and your spouse will be the ones to control the process.

Spouses going through a divorce should consider mediation. It works for almost all couples and is very beneficial. Since its approach is less adversarial and more cooperative and open, most mediations end with both parties being satisfied with the resolution. It is also more confidential and is often less expensive than court trials.

Who Would Benefit from Divorce Mediation?

Divorce litigation, while necessary for settling issues such as child support, spousal support, and division of assets, will require expenses that can consume a significant bulk of your savings. Mediation is often the option for divorcing spouses who wish to limit costs on attorney fees and other court fees.

Colorado divorce mediation can benefit divorcing spouses who are willing to come together, cooperate, and discuss any issues of contention that often come up in divorce proceedings, all in an atmosphere of mutual respect. This strategy is the most viable route for couples who are ready to give and take, and who are open to ideas presented by the other party.

It does not mean, however, that mediation will not work for high-conflict cases. Our attorney neutrals at Littleton Alternative Dispute Resolution, Inc. have years of experience in helping divorcing spouses focus on the issues at hand when emotions run high.

How does the divorce mediation process in Denver work?

In Colorado, mediation is required in almost every county before the final hearing on your divorce. You and your spouse will attend a series of half-day or full-day mediation sessions with a mediator and your respective lawyers (if any).

Mediation offers divorcing couples a safe and confidential space to discuss the issues they want to resolve. While mediators cannot make decisions for the divorcing couple, they can help facilitate honest and civil negotiations.

The following concerns can be handled through divorce mediation in Colorado:

• Child custody and parenting time
• Child support and spousal maintenance
• Division of marital assets
• Division of debt
• Relocation cases

If you and your spouse have reached an agreement on pending issues, your lawyer can help you draft a Memorandum of Understanding and submit it to the court. Once the court approves the terms, the mediation agreement becomes an order.

What is the difference between mediation and litigation?

In courtroom litigation, parties are represented by their respective attorneys and a judge makes decisions on each issue. Court proceedings can be lengthy and often involve heated debates and emotional stress for both parties.

If you want to avoid the hassle of navigating a court case, mediation may be right for you.

In mediation, divorcing couples negotiate their issues through a neutral mediator instead of relying on a judge to make decisions for their family. Both sides compromise on tough issues, placing less stress on everyone involved.

Mediation is much cheaper than attending and preparing for court hearings. Additionally, anything said in mediation is confidential. This means discussions cannot be brought up in court later in the event that both parties fail to reach a settlement.

When is divorce mediation appropriate?

Mediation is an efficient alternative for couples who wish to pursue a divorce with as little conflict as possible.

However, mediation is only ideal if the divorce is mutual and both spouses are forthcoming about their finances and assets. This means they are willing to provide the other with documentation relating to stocks, pensions, bank accounts, retirement funds, and debts.
