Divorce Mediation is a good option if you and your spouse have not been able to agree on everything during your divorce. A mediator acts as a third party who can help the divorcing couple reach a compromise on their differences. The mediator is an impartial third party who does not seek to make decisions for either party, but helps the parties determine areas of agreement and reduces the chances of a lengthy divorce.
When the divorcing couple meets for the first time, the mediator will lay out the basic issues of the divorce. For example, a couple with children would discuss child custody, child support, and spousal maintenance. They would also present financial statements, tax returns, and any other pertinent information. After the initial meeting, the parties will begin to negotiate the final settlement. The mediator will make suggestions based on the information they gather.
