Divorce is often a difficult process. Emotions run high and each side of the divorce has their own reasons to feel hurt, angry, and dismayed. In many cases, a divorce is often prolonged because each party has such a difficult time negotiating in a court setting with the other party. However, it is usually in the best interest of both sides of the divorce to not delay the inevitable and allow the divorce to finalize. This is the only way to begin the healing process.
In an effort to make the divorce negotiations more civil and to help them proceed in a timely manner, your Tulsa divorce lawyer
may recommend that the couple enters into mediation prior to going to court for the finalization of their divorce. Mediation allows both sides of the party to sit down and make all the plans for the divorce
in a controlled environment. These plans can then be submitted to the court for final approval and the granting of the divorce.How Does Divorce Mediation Work?
