Mediation Overview in Divorce Cases
Mediation is a court ordered confidential process where a qualified and neutral mediator, selected by the parties or appointed by the Court, assists the litigants in reaching mutually acceptable agreements. It is an informal and non-adversarial process. The role of the mediator includes, but is not limited to, assisting the parties in identifying issues, fostering joint problem-solving, exploring settlement alternatives and reaching agreements. Parties are required to mediate in good faith.
