Mediation can be a great way for a couple to split up their assets and move on quickly, with less stress and cost. However, in order to do so, you need to choose the right mediator.
So, how can you make sure that you have the right mediator? Here are some tips to help you find the right one.
Ask your friends and family. Unfortunately, most people know at least one or two people who have gone through a divorce. Some even have probably gone the mediation route so you should start by asking them.
If not, you could always look online. Many people don’t hire anyone without reading reviews, so that is always a good place to start to find a good mediator. However, you can’t place everything on them because one person can’t please everyone. This simply means that everyone is going to have at least one or two bad reviews.
Look for mediators who have gone through cases like yours. If you have children, you are going to want someone who has helped other parents through this difficult time. If you have a lot of money (or hardly any), a mediator who has helped others in similar situations may make the whole process go that much smoother.
You should also choose someone who is trained to deal with conflict. Divorces can get heated (and quickly) so you are going to need someone who is going to be able to keep everything moving even when you hit some of the trickier subjects.
Choosing the right mediator will make a big difference. In fact, the right one can make the whole process go that much smoother. Ask around or look online to find a few options. Then, you need to make sure that they have handled divorces similar to yours.
