Married couples in Nebraska expect their marriages to last. However, things happen and people get divorced. If you’re heading down that road, you might want to consider divorce mediation.
What is divorce mediation?
Divorce mediation is a process that takes an alternative to a traditional court divorce proceeding. When married couples agree on all or most aspects of their split and are willing to work together to settle everything, it’s a good option that can work. A neutral third party meets with the couple to help them work through any matters of concern. At the end of divorce mediation, the couple can reach a settlement that is satisfactory for both parties.
What are the benefits of divorce mediation?
If you and your spouse have decided that divorce is your only option and you’re willing to work together, you might want to consider mediation. There are several benefits of divorce mediation.
