In mediation, the couple hires a trained, impartial person to help them resolve disputes. The mediator acts as a guide, encouraging communication and writing agreements.
Both parties come to understand the issues and develop creative solutions. Most importantly, the parties stay in control of their family decision-making.
Usually, through mediation, parties reach an agreement more quickly and economically. Mediation can work for couples that have decided to divorce as well as for couples that want a separation but are unsure about divorce.
