Joining Divorce And Mediator Support Groups

Aug 18, 2007
Many families are unsure about divorce but their minds are continually clouded by thoughts of divorce. They do not know what all of the consequences will be if they get divorced from their spouse. All they realize during this time period is that they will be alone for the first time in a very long time and that they have children to think about too because they are going to be part of the divorce.

By joining divorce support groups, divorcing parents can find answers to questions.

The answers will come from people who are divorced and have gone through all of the phases of divorce. They can offer helpful tips to get you through the day and advise you of resources that they found helpful in developing parenting skills that are based on one parent concept.

Other people who are thinking about divorce will have different questions that need to be answered. They feel just as alone as anyone else that experiences a divorce, and through the mediation support groups they find that they are not alone anymore. There are other types of support groups too for people that are divorcing. Some center their talents on serving as mediators and there are others who work as marriage counselors and try to establish through observation and exercises whether there is any chance that the couple can remain together.

The mediator support groups are lead by a person who is trained in matters of divorce mediation and when the married couples learn that the mediator will not take sides they are more likely to explore all of the possibilities that might help save the assets that have accrued during their marriage. There has to be a neutral point in any divorce process and a mediator is as neutral as it gets.

Both parties attend the mediator support group, even if they are not on speaking terms with each other. The mediator is skilled at getting the couple to reach a lot of terms and there is no time limit involved in helping them to do so. Of course, the fees will accrue during the different disputes that arise with a mediator support group but the end result and amount of the fee will be based on how fast the parties can come to those agreements.

The mediator groups are very skilled at getting couples to make lists of all of the property that they accumulated during their marriage. Then the mediator will help them identify which property belonged to which person before the marriage. All of these determinations will help them finalize their division of community property.

Part of this list will also identify the debts incurred during the marriage and through the mediator the couple can make decisions on who will be responsible for paying each bill. The mediator will also get them to look at what spousal support amounts should be and how much the child support payments will be. The mediator helps to finalize all aspects of a marriage so that people can start a new life when the divorce is final.
