Many New York residents who are going through divorce may wonder how stressful their proceedings will be. Of course, each case depends on the individuals involved and the circumstances they are facing. If parties want to move forward with minimal conflict, they may want to make that decision before divorce proceedings start and work toward remaining as amicable as possible.
Unfortunately, there are cases in which conflict can run rampant. As a result, individuals could face considerable stress. Even if an individual wishes to move forward amicably, if both parties are not willing, the situation could drag on due to disagreements. Remaining calm could make a considerable difference in how proceedings are handled, but mutual respect is likely necessary in order for everyone to remain as calm as possible.
In many cases, mediation may be beneficial for cases where conflict could potentially arise. By having an open conversation with a third-party mediator, both parties may be better able to express their desires for how they hope the agreements will turn out. Compromising and negotiating through mediation may allow for both parties to feel as if they are being equally heard.
If individuals want to have a divorce with as minimal conflict as possible, they may want to first determine whether that wish is realistic. Should both parties be willing, low-conflict divorce could be feasible. Mediation may be an option for New York residents to consider if they believe they can move forward in an amicable manner in order to come to terms. More information on this option may help interested parties determine whether it could be right for them.
