One of the most important things that you can do when your marriage ends is to protect yourself. You will likely be hurting and your life will be changing. You may want to get through the divorce process as quickly and amicably as possible to save yourself time, money, and grief. Thus, a Seattle divorce mediation may sound like a viable option for you.

Don’t Let These Things Stop You

There is a lot to consider when you decide how to end your marriage. As you weigh your options, we urge you to remember that the following things will not prevent a successful Settle divorce mediation. You can have a successful divorce mediation if:

  • You have kids – Issues relating to your children such as legal custody, physical custody and child support can be decided during a divorce mediation.
  • You are in therapy – A divorce can be emotionally difficult and effectively mediated. It need not be contentious just because you are in therapy and your counseling needs should not prevent you from a successful mediation.
  • You hire a lawyer – It is common, and helpful, for each party to hire his or her own lawyer to protect his or her own interests in a divorce mediation.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that mediation is the only option available to you.

Learn All You Can About the Process

Before you begin the hard work of ending your marriage, you deserve to know more about the process. Accordingly, we invite you to read one of our FREE books: The Savvy Woman’s Guide to Divorce in Washington or The Thinking Man’s Guide to Divorce in Washington. Then, when you are ready, please contact us directly for a confidential consultation.
