One advantage of divorce mediation is that it can help couples resolve concerns following their divorce as well as during their divorce and can also lay a foundation for couples to resolve future concerns that might come up following their divorce and divorce settlement. Former celebrity couple Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are in mediation concerning their different parenting styles and how to raise their children.
It was reported that the two have different ideas about parenting and parenting styles, as one parent is more interested in parenting based on their religion. The former couple has 3 children. Their sons are ages 12, 10 and 4 ½. The couple's divorce settlement was finalized in 2016 and called for a 50-50 split of child custody and an unequal split of the marital property which Rossdale agreed to in taking less.
It was also noted that the former couple is committed to co-parenting. Divorce mediation provides many benefits including helping to guide divorcing couples through the divorce process and can also help them address concerns that arise following divorce. It can provide a framework to help them deal with needs that come up following the divorce that may require changes to a child custody arrangement, co-parenting or visitation plan, child support or other post-divorce concern.
The mediation process helps couples resolve challenges that arise during their divorce and following their divorce. As a result, divorcing couples should be familiar with how the mediation process works and how it can help them with the challenges they face.
