Individuals that have children and are going through a divorce or separation will have to figure out how to co-parent as a team. What they may not realize is that by going through mediation, they can prepare themselves as a co-parent. Circling Eagle Law can help explain what benefits you can expect from going through an amicable divorce with the assistance of a third-party mediator and attorney.
While mediation may not take as long as a traditional divorce, you will still need to exercise patience while negotiating. Each person will have their own time to speak about their stance on the situation. While interrupting may be tempting, both parties deserve the opportunity to get their side across. This level of patience will prove useful when co-parenting, as you cannot rush the process or expect it to go perfectly.
Another component of mediation is to develop an understanding of the other side. The point of going through mediation is to reach compromises on issues. This means that not everything will necessarily be decided in favor of one side. Instead, an agreement should be reached that benefits all parties involved. By adopting an understanding mindset, this will be easier to obtain. Furthermore, this same understanding will enhance your ability to co-parent.
To reach the best possible outcome during mediation, it is vital that both individuals openly communicate. Without open communication, it will be difficult for the mediator to guide the family in the best direction on the terms of their divorce. Furthermore, open communication is one of the most important elements of successful co-parenting. Without this, parents will struggle to provide their children with a smooth transition.
