When going through the divorce mediation process, there are several positive skills that you can gain. More importantly, these skills are transferable to co-parenting. Mediation can help prepare you to work together with your ex-spouse in a positive way that will benefit your children greatly.
Rozin | Golinder Law can tell you more about the positive benefits of this process.
Learning The Value of Compromise
When going through mediation, a third-party mediator and your attorney will help you reach a practical compromise. During a divorce, you will not always get everything you want. Instead, each spouse will have to give and take to some degree. The same goes for co-parenting situations. You and your ex-spouse may not necessarily agree on each aspect of raising your children, but you can work to reach a reasonable compromise.
When reaching a compromise in mediation, you will have to communicate your needs transparently. This is a skill that will positively impact the co-parenting process. Perhaps a last-minute change in your schedule occurs, making it necessary to communicate effectively with your ex-spouse, keeping them updated on the situation. Furthermore, it will make it easier to coordinate during special events, such as school activities if you are able to communicate amicably.
Getting on The Same Page
During the mediation process, you can work to create a custody and parenting time plan. You will have the opportunity to discuss what you need, allowing you and your ex-spouse to get on the same page. This is especially important for co-parenting, as it is vital for you and your spouse to reach an agreement that works for both of you. This includes how you will raise your children and meet their needs.
