Most divorcing couples find themselves in mediation somewhere throughout the divorce process. Mediation is one of the most used methods of negotiating a divorce settlement. Mediation is a process where a third party is hired to meet with the divorcing couples and help them discuss and resolve the issues of their divorce. The mediator is not there to make the decisions but rather to serve as a facilitator.
If you are going through a divorce, it will probably be one of most stressful times in your life. Especially if you have children, the emotional strain that litigation can put on your family can be overwhelming. A good divorce attorney will be sensitive to the hurt and anger you are experiencing and refer you to mediation.
