Divorce Mediation

       In "Divorce mediation"   you and your Spouse use a neutral individual, the "mediator", to assist you in resolving your family law issues.   Although there is no requirement that the Mediator be a Family Law Attorney, in my experience the best mediators are experienced family law attorneys and have a good understanding of the law underlying the issues.  Even when mediating a divorce or other family law issue I recommend each party have an attorney they can consult with prior to making important agreements as well as to review documents before they are signed.  When both parties are willing to be fair and respectful, there can be substantial savings in attorney fees as opposed to those couples who litigate through the court system.
