MediatorThe role of a mediator is important to understand if you decide to pursue mediation to settle the terms of your divorce. A mediator is a neutral third party that helps you navigate the divorce process in a fair and affordable way. A mediator does not make decisions about your case, in fact, that is really your job, but instead facilitates positive and productive discussion about the issues and conflict between you and your spouse. The goal of mediation is for both parties to find a way to voluntarily resolve issues like child custody, division of property and child support and spousal maintenance. This may seem impossible, but you might be surprised to learn that mediation is actually highly effective and successful in many cases.
