Mediation is a process where a neutral third party listens to the parties’ disagreement and helps them find a solution they both agree on. While sometimes the court might ask you to try mediation, it’s mostly up to you whether you want to participate. Both sides need to be honest and cooperative.
The mediator is there to assist the parties in talking through their issues and finding common ground. Unlike a court case, the mediator isn’t just interested in the facts – they also give the parties a chance to express their feelings in a positive way. This helps the couple work through their emotions and reach an understanding. However, it’s important to note that a mediator can’t provide legal or financial advice to either person; this is strictly not allowed.
