Strategies for a successful divorce mediation agreement

Take time and reflect ahead of time

Reflecting on what you need and want you to want to get from your divorce saves your money and time in the future. It is advisable that you note down your thoughts and read them aloud. You have to clearly identify what you hope to accomplish and what you are ready to let go of to achieve the outcome. Find more information here.

Consider strengths and weaknesses

It is necessary to try analyzing the weaknesses and strengths in all aspects before beginning negotiations. In simple terms, you have to identify the weaknesses and strengths of your ex.   In this case, it is easy to use the weaknesses of your ex to achieve your goals. See here for information about Stages of divorce mediation.

Monitor and control your emotions

Divorce is always emotional and stressful. During a mediation process, your emotions can be easily triggered. It is safe to plan accordingly, prepare yourself on how to manage your emotions during the session.

Don’t overreact to an offer

Every resolution has a starting point. You should avoid focusing on the inadequacy of a previous offer that you stop the conversation. Occasionally, the first offer in a divorce mediation process is strongly rejected. However, the agreement might be reached when the conversation moves to an advanced level.
