Things you shouldn't do during a Divorce Mediation

Divorce Mediation

Many couples are informed about Divorce Mediation and would rather go this route than go to court. A divorce mediation is a divorce process outside the court, coordinated by a certified mediating officer.

A divorce mediation in Orlando can be carried out by competent attorneys with ease while reducing the emotional and financial burden of the divorce. The needs of each partner are discussed, child custody, support and every other divorce related matters are addressed during the divorce mediation. As easy as it may seem, a divorce mediation can also be complicated or lead to a dead end due to some actions from you or your spouse.

There are some things you shouldn't do during a divorce mediation to avoid it having a huge influence and marring the outcome of the divorce mediation. Those things include:

Hoarding Information

During a divorce mediation, all hands must be on deck to ensure it turns out successfully. Vital information about you, your spouse, your children, financial status, properties and so on may be needed to conduct a thorough mediation. It will do you more harm than good if you hoard information.

Provoking your spouse

This is a pathway to an unsuccessful divorce mediation. You stand to gain nothing by provoking your spouse into being angry, rather it tends to prolong the mediation process as your spouse nay need to excuse himself or herself after such provocation.

Being petty
