You may find yourself steering towards mediation as a positive way of communicating with your ex as you urgently seek financial equitability and an end to your divorce.
Mediation has a great many benefits. A grown up with clout and a degree of power will work to keep reins on both parties and will urge them towards controlled and constructive dialogue that will bring this phase of the divorce to a close. Their very presence has an air of calm and structure and they will work hard to expedite matters.
If you have been a victim of domestic abuse, they will even offer you the option of sitting in a separate room to your ex, so you don’t have to suffer even a threat of intimidation.
However, this service comes at a cost and a fairly substantial one at that. If your ex has proposed a particular mediation company to do the job and you are unhappy with their proposal and fees, shop around, there are many companies who offer this service and the prices vary.
You don’t have to jump on the first bus to freedom; another will be along shortly and the fare might be cheaper.
