Common myths about divorce mediation

Divorce mediation is a common occurrence in today's world. It is an alternative that many divorcing couples use to appearing in court. Mediation is a great way to have your divorce attorney help you get what you want from the divorce. Today, we will take a look at the most common myths about divorce mediation so you go into the process with a clear understanding.

The most common myth is that you absolutely need the mediator to be on your side if you want to win. This is confusing mediation with arbitration, where an arbiter will hear both sides of the argument and then issue a ruling based on the evidence presented. A mediator cannot make a decision in mediation. He or she can only help the couple move towards a decision.

We have a lot of assets and our net worth is very high. There's no way that mediation will work for our situation. This myth is easily dispelled because the three areas of divorce that always need to be decided are child support and alimony, the division of assets and a parenting plan.

Another common myth is when you enter into mediation with the notion that you know what you should get from the divorce simply because you did some research on the internet. There is a lot of misleading information out there, so it's best to speak with an attorney before making any assumptions or expectations.

The myths about divorce mediation are easily dispelled. Make sure you understand what the process is and how you can put yourself in a strong position with the help of your divorce attorney in Round Rock, Texas.
