Divorce Options: Mediation

Mediation uses a neutral facilitator (the mediator, who is also often a lawyer) to guide the divorce negotiations from the beginning. Depending on the complexity of your case, the mediator may recommend – or you may request – that additional professionals join the process, such as financial advisers and parenting experts. You retain major control of your divorce, as you can move at your own pace. Mediation is a particularly good fit for couples focused on co-parenting, who need to retain an amicable relationship with their spouse even after the divorce is finalized.
