Help preparing for divorce mediation

The divorce process can be nerve racking at times but the mediation process is an alternative to divorce-related litigation that is designed to help couples resolve concerns in a more peaceful and productive manner. Tips for how to approach the mediation process, and especially the first session, can be helpful. Being prepared for the process can help ease fears and achieve a more successful outcome and amicable divorce.

Same-sex couples and opposite-sex couples may consider a domestic partnership as an alternative to traditional marriage. Domestic partnerships can be dissolved through a dissolution process that has some similarities to a traditional divorce but can have its own challenges. As a result, it is important for domestic partners seeking to dissolve their domestic partnership to understand the dissolution process.

From Baby Boomers to more recent generations of married couples, a strong emphasis is commonly placed on the wedding rather than the actual marriage or practical concerns such as protecting assets and prenuptial agreements. However, it is important to consider the impact a divorce might have on a business or the economic future of a couple when one or both partners are engaged in entrepreneurial pursuits such as a start-up company or others.
