Divorce is something very personal. Couples choose to divorce all the time for various reasons. And although it is ultimately their business and their business only, there may be a time where a third party may be required to help a divorcing couple work through their issues that still need to be dealt with. This way, they can figure out what will be best for the each of them as well as any children that are in the picture.
What Issues Can a Mediator Help With?
Mediators can help with numerous issues for a divorcing couple. However, one divorcing couple may require help for different issues from another couple. Everyone has different needs, wants, and concerns after all. Everyone’s circumstances may also vary. For instance, whether or not the couple has children together, the types of assets they have, and the like will all make a difference in what issues need to be dealt with, with a third party.
Some of the issues a mediator can help with include, but isn’t excluded to, child custody, child support, alimony, and asset distribution.
Is Mediation Required for Divorcing Couples?
Absolutely not. The decision to have a third party assist with common divorcing-related issues is completely up to the spouses. However, mediation is strongly recommended as it can help make the process of divorce much smoother, less costly, and in the end, fairer for both sides.
Divorce is rarely ever “easy,” which is why having a third party help make some of the big divorce decisions is a good idea. This is especially true if the couple strongly disagrees with one another, has difficulty communicating with each other, and/or has trouble making decisions that would not only best benefit them but also their child(ren) if applicable.

It’s not always simple admitting that you need a mediator to help you as you close off your marriage with your spouse. But ultimately, it can be for the better.
With a third party present, this can help both spouses feel more at ease knowing that they will have an expert help delegate post-marriage assets and so on. In turn, this can take a great deal of hard feelings and stress off their hands during the process. And for the spouses who don’t particularly get a long at the slightest, divorce mediation may leave them on less shaky ground and feeling less resentful towards one another in general, which is crucial in the long run if there are children in the picture.
