MEDIATOR. One who interposes between two
contending parties, with their consent, for the purpose
of assisting them in settling their differences.
At some point in a divorce proceeding parties may
request, or the Court may order mediation of the case.
Mediation is a process for resolving disputes that
allows parties, with the help of a mediator, to come to
an agreement on contended issues.
Mediators are required to:
Remain neutral – not
biased toward either party
Not force either party
into an agreement
Always work for the
mutual good of the parties.
Mediation opens lines of communication and allows
parties to explore all settlement options in order to
resolve disputes. Everything said during mediation is
confidential and (except as provided by law) may not be
repeated to anyone other than the other party and/or the
party’s attorney. Mediation gives parties more control
over the outcome of their case, normally allows the case
to be resolved sooner, and can save on the overall
expense involved in the case.
