Divorce mediation is a collaborative process in which both parties are involved. A trained mediator helps both parties come to an agreement. The process is not limited to discussing divorce law; it also includes a number of housekeeping issues that must be addressed. As the parties prepare for a settlement, the mediator will ask questions to clarify each party’s position. Together, they will determine the best course of action. During the first session, both parties will need to take a break from their daily routines to make sure that they are both in the same place and on the same page.
