Generally speaking, divorce is an emotionally difficult process regardless of the relative issues any particular couple may be experiencing. So too, the same can be said for your children and with a great deal of uncertainty as to how any child may handle their own experience. It can certainly be devastating to a child to go through their processing of the divorce and bear witness to their parents' varying levels of animosity. If you are considering a divorce –you well should consider Mediation instead of traditional litigation. Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method (ADR) that has the potential to dramatically reduce stress and anxiety for one, as well as minimize the length of the process and eliminate your time in court. Reduce Stress. Save Time and Save Money. Have that much more time and financial resources for yourself and your children.
