HOW CAN MEDIATION HELP ME?
Sometimes people get confused with the fact that a Mediator does not give legal advice so keep in mind that a Mediator cannot replace your lawyer. Your Mediator guides you and your spouse through negotiation to help you reach an agreement on the issues involved in your case. The Mediator doesn’t take sides, but acts only as an advocate for settlement. It’s your lawyer’s responsibility to make sure you are protected legally throughout the Divorce process.
Why is Mediation better than Court?
Mediator make a difference because they assist both parties in focusing on the real concerns and interests at the heart of the Divorce. They add an impartial voice to the conversation as they guide each person to an understanding of what solutions will work best given the situation.
