What Is Mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary process in which the Mediator is a neutral third party who works through the divorce process with a couple. Taking place throughout one to several mediation sessions, the Mediator helps identify the issues and facilitates discussions around the division of assets, spousal and child support, and other matters on which the couple must make decisions. The result is a mutually developed, legally binding agreement that both parties agree to comply.
Mediation Allows Divorce Without Lawyers, If You Choose
In a traditional, litigated divorce, you hand over control of your divorce process to your lawyers, a judge and the court system. You will have input throughout the process, but ultimately, the outcome of your divorce will be decided by a judge based on arguments made by your lawyers.
In mediation, you control the timing and pace of your divorce process. The Mediator will help you will craft your divorce agreement in collaboration with your spouse, and you have the freedom to decide whether or not your agreement is equitable.
