Statistics show that mediation leads to better post-divorce relationships between spouses – and better situations for children. Unlike an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse may still disagree about the outcome but decide to undergo mediation with a neutral third party to settle differences.
Who Attends the Mediation?
You and your divorce attorney, the professionally-licensed mediator, and your spouse and their divorce lawyer are the usual people sitting in a room working out the details of your relationship after the dissolution of your marriage.
You do not have to have a family attorney present, but if your spouse has retained a private lawyer, Nancy Ghertner highly recommends that you also retain an attorney who will protect your rights, either as an ex-spouse or as a parent.
