Mediation is often the best way to solve the problems inherent in divorce: emotional rather than legal issues often tend to rule the day and Mediation can offer a realistic and holistic approach to creating solutions to these problems for the entire family. In Mediation the parties meet with a neutral person whose role is to help them reach an agreement on all or some of the issues in their divorce so as not to go to court where a judge will determine the outcome with reference only to the law, and not to emotional or other issues. You should be represented by an attorney in mediation and you should expect a mediator to challenge your ideas about what is “fair” or “equitable” on the road to crafting a good settlement.
