Throughout mediation, there are only 3 of you in the room, the mediating attorney, you, and your soon to be ex. This type of meeting calls for a more informal dress because it is designed to encourage a functional relationship between spouses. Despite that, be conscious of what you decide to wear. Coming to the meeting wearing provocative or high-priced clothing or flaunting a fancy engagement ring, could provoke your ex and create aggression throughout the meeting. Be courteous of the circumstances, and come ready to participate in a cooperative, relaxed manner.
Always get to any legal meeting early and be sure that your clothes are neat and appropriately put together.
It’s alright to be in comfortable clothing throughout mediation, but don’t come wearing a shirt that reads ‘My Ex is Dumb.’ If what you wear makes your spouse upset, it will be brought up. There’s a calmness that differs from court proceedings, but you should still be respectful.
What to Wear to Collaborative Divorce Meetings?
If you both have decided to engage in a collaborative divorce, a business casual look is suitable. When arriving at a collaborative meeting, you are getting together with lawyers and other professionals, so it is sensible to dress business casual.
Importantly, prior to stepping into any legal meeting, no matter how you dress, always remember you are never completely dressed without your smile.
