Will Mediation Work For Us?
If the thought of expensive legal fees and a long divorce process stress you, then consider mediation. Mediation, a process where a neutral third party provides a private informal way to discuss and try to resolve any conflict. Mediation has grown in popularity as a way to settle divorce. Mediators are licensed professionals who can arrange a binding agreement between divorcing couples without the higher costs associated with lawyers going to court.
However, mediation will only work if you and your spouse can first agree not to disagree and then negotiate a mutually-satisfying agreement. For a fee, a mediator facilitates the process and leads you to a binding agreement.
The following summarizes a typical mediator’s contract. Get familiar with it and compare it to how other mediators provide his or her services:
"This agreement reflects the commitment of each party to negotiate fairly, honestly and equitably throughout the mediation process."
