What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce Mediation is a process in which parties who wish to divorce, agree to problem-solve together using one neutral mediator who does not represent either party. Sometimes each party also has a lawyer, but in most cases not. In Divorce Mediation, the parties are the primary negotiators. The role of the lawyers, if any, is to advise their clients throughout the mediation process as to their legal rights and obligations. In our mediation practice, the married couple meets together with us to resolve disputes both during and sometimes after the divorce. As mediators, we work to assist with communication and cooperation, so that the parties can reach agreement on otherwise difficult topics to discuss.
