One of those is a professional mediation, and it has helped millions of couples settle important issues related to child custody, spousal support, and many others. Scheduling a divorce mediation session doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll settle the issues to the point where you won’t get divorced, but it does help settle important issues that must be resolved before the divorce is finalized.
What Is Divorce Mediation?
Simply put, a mediation is a formal process that involves the couple themselves and an objective third party that is not there to do anything except help the couple resolve issues. The mediator merely assists both parties and does not tell the parties what they should do.
Since the mediator is objective and has no stake in the outcome of the mediation process, their role is that of an intermediary who can offer opinions or make suggestions, but they will never force the couple to do one thing or another. Think of it like this: a mediation exists to find solutions to the issues plaguing the soon-to-be-divorced couple.
