Is Your Divorce a Candidate for Mediation?

Mediation may be a good option for you if:

What to Expect

The mediator’s goal is to get you and your spouse to agree. He or she is certain to do some coaxing often aimed at the spouse who seems more pliable. Therefore, before the mediation begins, you and your divorce lawyer must have a goal-setting conversation. You must determine where the line in the sand is going to be drawn: what items are negotiable and what (ideally, relatively few) items are non-negotiable. A successful result is most often achieved by the party who is able to stand firm on a non-negotiable issue, while holding open the door to agreement on other issues.

Even when agreement is reached only on some issues, mediation can save the court and the lawyers time, and the parties money. Plus, once the parties see, in writing, the breadth of disputes they have resolved in this fashion, further negotiations often can produce the agreement that escaped them during the mediation process.
