The Mediation Process
Mediation is often used as a dispute resolution method when negotiation has not yielded results. In the mediation process, a neutral mediating attorney guides a discussion with the aim of uncovering areas of agreement and disagreement in order to reach solutions to outstanding problems. Each party is represented by an attorney who can protect their client's interests. One or both of the parties to the divorce may be present during the discussion, but can choose not to participate. Mediation can be used to resolve any or all of the issues in a divorce including child custody and visitation, spousal maintenance, and property division. At any time the parties can choose to stop the mediation process and seek to resolve their disagreements through negotiation or litigation.
