Mediation is a Good Option When Anger is Present in Your Divorce

Mediation is a good option when anger is present in your divorce. There are often issues of resentment, bitterness and other negative emotions during the course of a Louisville divorce. While these may be obvious responses to the issues which lead to the end of a marriage, decisions taken in the midst of emotion are most often not in your best interest in the long term.

The experienced divorce and family law attorneys at Dodd & Dodd have represented clients before Louisville divorce and family law courts for decades. We understand the diverse emotions which surface during the course of any divorce. Part of our responsibility as “Counselors at Law” is to guide our clients through the emotional challenges of a divorce in addition to legal issues and the important decisions which must be made along the way.

Mediation is a good option when anger is present in your divorce and other negative emotions are impacting a couple’s ability to work through all issues contained within the separation agreement. In mediation, ground rules are established which ensure the parties and their representatives work in a non-conflict environment to find common ground and identify potential solutions which will resolve these emotional issues.

The mediator works to establish a productive environment for delicate conversations surrounding child custody and parenting time, child support, maintenance and other contentious issues in any divorce.

An effective mediator helps to alleviate these emotions and replace them with a clear understanding of the legal and practical issues at hand. When parties are able to reach a negotiated settlement, through mediation or Dodd & Dodd’s effective negotiating strategies, the parties are much more likely to abide by those agreements after the divorce.
