What is divorce mediation?

Divorce mediation is a method of alternate dispute resolution. With the help of a mediator, a couple can negotiate terms of their divorce. A mediator’s goal is to guide a couple through every important unresolved issue. As a neutral third-party, a mediator represents neither party and works to get the couple to an agreement on all unresolved marital matters, ensuring that both are able to speak freely in meetings centered around mutual respect. Divorce mediation is a series of sessions; negotiations that center around respect and a common goal. The time it takes to resolve these issues depends on the couple’s ability to agree. The process lasts as long as necessary. Once the sessions are complete, the mediator will draft a Separation Agreement to be used if the couple wishes to divorce.
