Why mediation is often best option for Texas parents

The day you got married, it was unlikely that you imagined you would one day be getting divorced. In fact, like many Texas spouses, you may have been with your partner for 10 years or more and had several children before determining that your relationship was not working out as you'd hoped it might. Like all good parents, your kids are your top priority, which is why you want to find a way to settle your divorce as swiftly and painlessly as possible.

While you may no longer want to be married to your spouse, you understand that, as parents, you'll always have a connection in life. Parents in similar situations, who want to cut ties as spouses but avoid confrontation for the sake of their children, often choose divorce mediation instead of going to court.

Parents who mediate their divorce cite benefits

The idea that you can settle your divorce and move on in life without stepping foot inside a courtroom may interest you. Many other parents in past situations have felt the same. The following list includes benefits such parents often cite as to why mediation is a great option: 

  • Mediation is a non-confrontational approach to divorce. It allows you and your spouse to devise a co-parenting plan in a confidential and peaceful setting. 
  • If there is no reason to believe your spouse's presence is a detriment to your children, then shared custody may be most desirable, and you can negotiate the details of a shared custody agreement during mediation sessions. 
  • Are finances one of your main concerns as you prepare to divorce? Mediation is typically much less expensive than litigation.

When your children witness you and their other parent working together as a team to execute a co-parenting plan that centrally focused on their well-being, it can help them cope with the changes in their lives. On the other hand, kids exposed to a lot of parental conflict in divorce often experience high levels of stress.

Talk to others who have mediation experience

Chances are, you have a relative, friend or co-worker in your life who has mediated a divorce. It can be helpful to ask questions about the process, as well as Texas laws and other issues, so you know what to expect and can determine if divorce mediation might work for you. An experienced mediator can provide guidance and support as you explore your options as well.
