The Greatest Benefit of Divorce Mediation: Saving Relationships

"Do you help couples stay together?"


"No, unfortunately I don’t. I help couples separate and divorce in a way that reduces conflict and most importantly looks after the best interest of the children and the family as a whole."


In this excellent blog posting, Roseann Vanella and Carmela DeNicola explain that, during mediation, couples are encouraged to find common ground on the issues that need to be resolved, develop peaceable and workable resolutions (for these issues), and part ways amicably. When children see that their parents are able to resolve their divorce and still maintain a good relationship, it makes it much easier to accept what happened and adjust to their new reality.


This is an intangible benefit of mediation that you cannot put a price on, and it is the biggest reason I do what I do.
