Understanding the Divorce Mediation Process

Unlike courtroom proceedings, divorce mediation fosters open communication and collaboration between the parties. The process typically begins with an introductory meeting where the mediator outlines the ground rules and establishes a framework for the sessions. Each spouse is given an opportunity to express their concerns, goals, and priorities.

Throughout subsequent sessions, the mediator facilitates discussions on various aspects of the divorce, such as child custody, division of assets, spousal support, and any other pertinent issues. Unlike litigation, where decisions are imposed by a judge, mediation empowers couples to make their own informed choices with the guidance of the mediator.

What Does a Mediator Do?

The mediator does not advocate for either party but serves as a neutral facilitator, guiding the conversation, ensuring each party's concerns are heard, and helping them explore possible solutions. Mediators are typically trained in conflict resolution and family law, providing them with the skills necessary to navigate the complexities of divorce negotiations.
