Question: What is Divorce Mediation and How Does it Work?

Meditation during divorce is a way of finding solutions to issues such as child custody and spousal support. It is an alternative to formal process of divorce court. During mediation, both parties to the divorce and their attorneys meet with a court appointed third party. This third party, the “mediator” assists the parties in negotiating a resolution to their divorce.

Parties have the opportunity to discuss the issues, clear up any disagreements and come to an agreement that they both agree to.

The Mediator is an objective party. It is not the Mediator's job to resolve problems or force an agreement on the parties. The Mediator helps the parties come to an agreement by acting as an intermediary. The Mediator may offer an opinion or make suggestions but, at no time is the Mediator allowed to force an agreement upon the parties.

Some of the Advantages of Mediation:

  • Saves time and money. If successful, mediation means sidestepping the formal process of divorce court. This shortens the process for the parties and helps minimize the caseload of the Family Court System.
  • Is fair to all concerned. The Mediator is a third party who has no interest in the outcome. The Mediator stands to gain nothing. Because the Mediator is neutral and does not have any vested interest in the outcome, the Mediator may be able to see solutions the parties can’t because they are emotionally invested in the outcome.
  • Mediation is a confidential process. There is no court reporter taking down every word said. Any notes taken by the Mediator are thrown away afterwards. You don’t have to worry about your “dirty laundry” being aired in public. There is no public court process.
  • Avoids long, drawn out litigation, saves money in attorney fees and cuts down on the steps one normally has to go through to obtain a divorce.
  • The Mediator has experience in these cases and may make suggestions to the parties about problems that the parties would not otherwise be aware of.  With some knowledge about unexpected problems that might arise the parties can work with a Mediator to include provisions in their Mediation Agreement to address these issues. 
  • The Mediator can help the parties work out a Parent Plan which includes many provisions in it to address situations before they become problems.
