A valid alternative for overcoming the marriage crisis

Nowadays marriages have already drastically decreased in the last decade, and the cohabitations have a shorter duration, with serious repercussions on the psychological aspect of the couple and the children who are most affected by the family malaise. “Recently our legislation has introduced more simplified separation so as to allow procedures that are resolved quickly, especially in the absence of minor children “asserts without half terms the lawyer. Mara Zannoni of Rome, arguing for Family Mediation, for decades in use in other European States, Americans and Canadians.

Avv. Zannoni, what is Family Mediation?

It is a path that the parties decide to undertake with a third person, impartial (the mediator), aimed at the reorganization of family relationships. It can be used in various familiar contexts, but is usually undertaken following a separation or divorce. The mediator, who must be a person prepared for this purpose and officially recognized by the institutions, stimulates spouses (or former spouses or comrades) to reactivate communication between them and to draw up separation agreements for themselves and for any children, in absolute autonomy from the judiciary. In this way, the couple will find a new way of managing family relationships and parenting tasks, both from a psychological and purely practical point of view.

What are the advantages of this institute?

Compared to the traditional procedure, the advantages of an economic nature are considerable, thanks to decidedly more streamlined procedures. But it is above all those of a psychological nature that play a primary role. This path, in fact, allows the parties to constructively live their conflict and reorganize their lives by finding serenity and well-being. The important thing is to make the former spouses understand (if they are a marriage crisis) that one can cease to be spouses but not to be parents! It seems trivial, but unfortunately sometimes it happens to have to remark! During the meetings, usually on a weekly basis, the mediator will direct the parties to enjoy constructive and serene management of their relationship, learning to enhance their parenting functions and putting their educational responsibilities at stake. At the end of the entire journey, if an agreement is reached, a draft agreement is drawn up which, signed by the parties, must first be handed over to the lawyers and then to the judge who will insert the conditions in the de qua sentence. A fundamental role in this scenario Lawyers have the right to verify – subject to assessment on a case by case basis – whether the conditions for mediation exist.
