How does one go about coming out ahead in divorce, or keeping your eyes on the real prize? Well, we start by making sure we really understand what the real prize is, and then ensure that all of the steps we take throughout the divorce process is really directing us towards this.
We have to ask ourselves if the real prize is:
- Ensuring complete depletion of the family’s savings?
- Making sure the children are alienated from one of their parents?
- Winning at any cost, whether to your bank balance or your dignity?
Most people will answer those questions with an emphatic “NO”, and there are good reasons for that. No matter how angry or hurt we may be by the behaviour of the other side, spending our life savings on legal fees, taking away a parent from a child or behaving in such a way that we are secretly ashamed of ourselves for the rest of our lives are not the actions of a competent and rational adult. Sadly however, those families who drag each other through the divorce court system end up achieving one or all of these very undesirable goals.
New Landscape Family Mediation offers an alternative path. Beginning with a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM), you can begin a divorce process that will enable you to emerge from the other side with the majority of your savings, children with both of their parents, and the ability to hold your head up high for the rest of your life.
Coming out ahead in divorce and keeping your eyes on the real prize doesn’t happen by accident. It is something that you and your former partner can create with the assistance of a Family Mediation Council accredited mediator.
