Divorce mediation is a process that allows both parties to have control over their divorce. The divorce mediator does not have a vested interest in the outcome and stands to lose nothing in the process. This helps the mediator find solutions that the couple and their attorneys may not have been able to see on their own. In addition, the process is confidential and does not involve a court reporter. This puts the divorcing couple in control of the outcome.
The first meeting of the mediation process is very important because it sets the foundation for future discussions. It is important for both parties to discuss the main issues related to the divorce, such as child custody and child support. If the couples have children, they would also discuss child support and spousal maintenance. Financial statements and tax returns are essential for this meeting, as well as other pertinent information. Once these issues have been discussed, the mediator will guide the parties to reach an agreement.
