Divorce mediation is the process of bringing about a settlement between individuals through the objective intervention of an impartial third party. The impartial third party, or divorce mediator, facilitates the discussion and resolution of all issues of the divorce, including asset distribution, child support, and child custody. The mediator does not take a side, but interacts closely with both parties, guiding the critical decisions that will affect their futures and those of their children. The mediator’s role is a neutral guide, and they cannot define the terms of the settlement or force either spouse into an agreement. Once the two parties resolve all relevant issues, the mediator can draw up a legally binding agreement for both parties to sign.
Mediation is a more peaceful, less expensive alternative to the traditional litigated divorce process. Divorce mediation process saves time and money, and can greatly reduce emotional distress. It is a legally binding approach that offers a swift and cost-effective resolution without court interference.
