Divorce mediation can help couples who want an uncontested divorce but who cannot come to an agreement on their own about the issues. A trained mediator helps to oversee negotiations between the couple, working with them to better communicate, understand the law, clarify their expectations and find compromise.
Mediators do not tell you what to do or make any decisions for you. Their role is to enable better communication so you can make the choices that are best for you and your loved ones.
Mediators typically set meeting agendas, request information from both parties (such as financial documents) and guide you through discussions that hopefully lead to the drafting of a settlement agreement both spouses sign onto.
