      My own experience reflects the wider picture that many of these arguments could have been settled without formal litigation, and without the associated costs. Filing and Service of the Case First, your divorce case must be filed with the court. You can use a mediator to help you resolve these issues, or negotiate directly or through attorneys. Through time, I have learned that I can best parent my children by accepting our reality and making sure that my daughters feel supported, heard, loved, and validated when they are with me. Your personal information much of it not pleasant to discuss will be brought up and discussed in public. Disputes between family members or neighbors often fall into this category.

      It's been four years since that moment in my therapist's office, and two years since my divorce was finalized. If, however, you are willing to implement these suggestions, you will be doing a great deal to increase the chances of having a successful mediation experience. And it allows the person not speaking to hear the perspective of the other person. Although more than 90 percent of litigated disputes settle before trial, settlement discussions often do not get serious until a trial date is near.

      Through time, I have learned that I can best parent my children by accepting our reality and making sure that my daughters feel supported, heard, loved, and validated when they are with me. The court may order you and your spouse to attend a settlement conference, often with a retired judge, to try to get you to work out your differences. There will be a date by which you must each name the witnesses who will testify, disclose what your experts will say, and identify every document you intend to introduce into evidence at trial. Yet neither sister thought the other had violated her legal rights or broken the law—it was just a dispute between partners, which mediation could very likely help settle. Because I was telling the truth, I naively expected that the court system would believe me. Divorces are no different.
