There are many benefits to obtaining a divorce via mediation in Texas. These include, but are by no means limited to, saving time and money, avoiding court and reaching settlements which benefit the entire family. Another perk of divorce mediation is that, by discussing divorce issues in a calm environment, spouses can lay the groundwork for future negotiations with their former spouse.
For spouses who have children, this benefit can be very helpful down the road. In divorce mediation, spouses learn how it is possible to cooperate in the midst of emotional stress. This skill can be enormously valuable if conflict should arise later on, especially if it relates to co-parenting. With the holidays coming up, many divorced parents are wondering how to cooperate financially regarding their children's holiday wishes.
