What is the Role of the Divorce Mediator?

Divorce Mediation

The mediator acts as a neutral third party, helping to identify and resolve any and all pertinent issues in a particular divorce.  The mediator does not represent the interest of either party individually, but rather works towards fair settlement of all issues with both parties in mind–searching for a workable middle ground on particular issues, as well as in the divorce as a whole.  A particular strength of mediation is the flexibility with which the mediator can operate.  The mediator is free to find creative approaches and unique solutions to the parties’ specific disputes in a way that would be much more restricted in court or at trial.  Mediators, however, do not make decisions.  He or she is not a judge.  Ultimately settlement can only be reached by agreement of both parties.
