What is divorce mediation?
Divorce mediation is a voluntary process where divorcing couples work together with a trained mediator to negotiate and resolve their differences in a non-adversarial forum.
For many divorcing couples, mediation has become a viable alternative
to the financial and emotional costs of traditional adversarial legal
representation. Sensibly used, mediation provides the opportunity to
find fair and realistic solutions to the economic and practical issues
facing the family and also helps to heal the psychological rift.
"The central quality of mediation...[is] its capacity to reorient the parties toward each other, not by imposing rules on them, but by helping them to achieve a new and shared perception of their relationship."
- Lon Fuller, 1971
