What is mediation?

One of the most common ways of finding a solution after a marital breakdown is to go through the process of mediation in order to reach an agreement on the terms of a separation or divorce. In divorce mediation, you arrange a meeting between yourself and your spouse and, in some cases, each of your lawyers. You call in a third party who acts as the mediator. The mediator is not responsible for making decisions on your behalf, but uses his or her experience in order to offer suggestions that will help you and your spouse reach a fair agreement on matters such as alimony, child custody, and the distribution of any of your joint assets.
