What is Divorce Mediation and How Can it Help Me?
Are you currently going through a divorce in Las Vegas or perhaps you’re contemplating getting a divorce in the near future?
Are you finding it hard for both you and your spouse to agree on the major issues (child custody, visitation, property division, etc.)… that may be surrounding your divorce?
Do you want to make sure that you don’t get caught in a legal divorce battle in the Las Vegas courtroom… which could potentially cost you tens of thousands of dollars?
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions… then you are in the RIGHT place.
In this article… we are going to show you why getting divorce mediation in Las Vegas will be one of the BEST choices you ever made… if you are going through a divorce and both you and your spouse can’t agree on the major issues.
But first, here’s a quick & sad divorce fact…
FACT: The AVERAGE cost of a contested, fought out divorce in this nation now hovers around the $15,000 to $20,000 mark (source: Huffington Post)
Now I’m not sure of your current financial position… but I think it’s safe to say that most people do not just have that amount of money just sitting around collecting dust in their bank account… and even if they did…
…I’d venture to say that no one in their right mind would want to waste that type of money on a divorce.
Simply put, the more a couple fights and disagrees with each other during their Las Vegas divorce process… the more expensive it will become at the end of the day.
FACT: When you go to the divorce court without any agreement… both you and your spouse are put in adversarial positions… where your attorney attacks your spouse… and your spouse’s attorney attacks you.
Trust us when we say that this can be a BRUTAL process for even the strongest person. All of your “private laundry” is aired in the public in a courtroom setting.
And then at the end of the day… after both you and your spouse have EACH wasted $5,000 to $10,000 of your hard-earned money on divorce attorneys to fight for you by tearing down your spouse…
…a judge who knows nothing about you or your values will make the decision on who gets custody and visitation of your child(ren)… and a judge who doesn’t really care about you will make the decision on who will get the home or the business and how you will split up your property and debts.
After an expensive warfare and a legal battle like that… it’s no wonder why so many ex-husbands and ex-wives literally HATE each other’s guts after their divorce battle is over.
Not only would this affect your relationship with your spouse after the divorce… you better believe it will also affect your children if you and your spouse have any.
Here’s Why Las Vegas Divorce Mediation WILL Help You…
Divorce mediation in Las Vegas helps both you and your spouse by removing the “adversarial approach” that most courtrooms welcome.
Divorce mediation brings both you and your spouse into a informal, comfortable, safe and neutral setting…
…where both you and your spouse’s concerns and issues can be voiced and heard… by a neutral 3rd party.
The 3rd party who is doing the divorce mediation for you and your spouse… will help both of you through friendly negotiation and talks… come to a mutually acceptable agreement that both of you can accept.
Typically when both the husband and wife see and understand how expensive a long, fought-out court battle can be in regards to their divorce… and when they both see that it will destroy them emotionally, mentally and financially…
…most reasonable people will agree to come to the divorce mediation table to try to get a solution to their problem.
At Nevada Divorce Center, we believe that MOST divorces can and should be handled amicably and in a friendly manner… without all of the tension, drama and expense that we currently see in the divorce arena.
FACT: When you use our divorce mediation services… we don’t make the decision for you on how you will raise your children or divide up your property or finances… we simply help you and your spouse come to an agreement yourselves.
A Las Vegas divorce mediation’s purpose is not to try to restore or save your marriage… but rather, to make sure that the couple who are divorcing both feel like a WIN/WIN position has been achieved by both.
When couples are going through a Las Vegas divorce and they are fighting it out tooth and nail… the following list below are some of the more common disagreements:
- The couple are fighting over who gets custody of the kids,
- The couple are fighting over visitation dates,
- The couple are fighting over child support amounts,
- The couple are fighting over how to divide up property, bank accounts, retirement plans,
- One spouse may want spousal support (alimony) and the other refuses,
- Many times, there may be no tangible issues like the ones listed above… the other spouse may just REFUSE to sign the divorce papers because they want to salvage the marriage.
Las Vegas divorce mediation can help both you and your spouse come to a mutual agreement on solving the divorce problems listed above (plus other issues that weren’t listed).
A typical divorce that is fought out in court can last many months… sometimes years and cost up to $15,000 to $20,000.
Through weekly divorce mediation meetings that are ONLY 60 minutes long… a couple can typically come to an agreement and resolve their issues within two (2) to five (5) divorce mediation meetings.
The cost for each divorce mediation meeting at Nevada Divorce Center is ONLY $100 per session (as of 7/4/2013).
After both you and your spouse have come to an agreement on all of the major divorce issues… we can then also prepare your divorce paperwork, file it for you & get you divorced quickly and for an affordable price.
Either party are free to bring in their own attorneys with them to the Las Vegas divorce mediation.
Both you and your spouse OWE it to yourselves to make sure you don’t get caught up in your emotions and anger… and become victims of the legal system during your divorce in Las Vegas.
Don’t waste tens of thousands of dollars on expensive litigation… only to have a judge who does not know you or your spouse make the decisions about how you raise your children… or how you divide up your property and finances.
Both you and your spouse are adults… and being adults… YOU should make these important decisions for yourselves… not a judge.
