Sometimes settling a divorce can be difficult. The former couple may find it difficult to negotiate the terms of the divorce. This delay causes more emotional hardships and often leads to more failures to negotiate the terms of the divorce. It is a vicious circle that can be hard to break.

When this cycle is occurring, your Tulsa divorce attorney may recommend divorce mediation. Mediation is a legal proceeding that allows both parties and their attorneys to meet and negotiate the terms of the divorce face-to-face. It also helps keep emotions out of the process and allows the divorce to move forward.


What Is Negotiated During Divorce Mediation?

All aspects of the divorce can be negotiated during mediation. Separation of assets and debts, establishing spousal and child support, creating visitation plans, or any other necessary fact that must be addressed as part of the divorce are all negotiated during the mediation. Mediation can take place in one meeting or over a course of several meetings.

Your Tulsa divorce attorney will be with you through the entire process. Having your attorney there ensures that your rights are protected and that all negotiations are fair to both parties and are within the guidelines of the law.

Going through a divorce is never easy. However, if it is inevitable, it is almost always in the best interest of both parties to negotiate the terms of the divorce in a professional manner so that the divorce can be finalized and both parties can go their own ways and begin their healing process.
