During the divorce process mediation might be ordered by the Court particularly if the case involves a dispute regarding custody or placement. See our Mediation FAQ for answers to basic mediation questions.
A mediator is often a licensed attorney with special training in mediation. The mediator has no ties or relationship to any party in the divorce action. Mediation is typically conducted only with the two parties and the mediator. It is a means of communication between the parties with an unbiased professional guiding and facilitating the parties to reach agreements in their pending divorce. In many cases something positive comes out of mediation. Unfortunately not all parties can always come to a mutual agreement and mediation is discontinued.
