Despite what Tennessee residents may hear, not every divorce has to be a knockdown, drag-out battle between two people who once vowed to love and support each other for the rest of their lives. People change and when they do they may find that the relationships that they are in are not compatible with the futures that they see for themselves. Divorce facilities change, and in some cases that change can be accomplished without fighting.
Divorce mediation may be an option for couples who want to end their marriages but want to avoid the time, money and emotions of a courtroom divorce. Litigated divorces are generally what people may consider traditional divorces: two people appear before a judge who has the authority to decide what will happen to their property, assets and even children. In a mediated divorce, however, the parties to the proceedings work together out-of-court to make collaborative decisions about what will be best for them in their post-divorce lives.
