Hollywood is famous for its lack of lasting marriages and its dramatic break-ups and make-ups. And while we probably can’t learn too much from celebrities about how to have a strong, lasting marriage, we may be able to learn something from them when it comes to having a private, fast divorce.
These days, the vast majority of celebrities choose divorce mediation over litigation. Why do they do this, and what can we learn from their choices?
Divorce Mediation Means Privacy
You might not need privacy as much as Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, but it is still nice to know that your dirty laundry isn’t being aired in public, so that friends, family, and your kids can hear all of the smallest details of your break-up and finances. Mediation is structured so that everyone involved must keep mum when it comes to the process and to the settlement.
Divorce Mediation Means Cooperation
Celebrities often depend on a good public image to keep their careers going strong. A divorce can threaten that public image, especially if you battle it out with your ex in court. Mediation allows you to take the high road and show the public that you are willing to cooperate and compromise even though your marriage is ending.
