Not every couple in Colorado seeking a divorce wants to "get back" at their ex. Quite the contrary, many couples may want to try to tackle their divorce legal issues in as amicable and cooperative manner as possible, especially if they have children. Most importantly, they want to see that the end result of their divorce is fair to all involved. For these couples, divorce mediation may be an attractive option.
Through mediation, the couple will work with an impartial mediator to voluntarily work out a resolution to their divorce legal issues out-of-court. Mediation is a confidential process. Moreover, it can be less costly -- emotionally and financially -- than traditional litigation. And, it gives couples more control over the outcome of their divorce than they would have if they litigated it. Mediation allow the parties to reach a creative and detailed settlement.
