Divorce mediation is a process to dissolve a marriage or parenting conflict in an amicable and nonaggressive way. Divorce mediation will allow each participant an opportunity to negotiate and direct a settlement independent of the court or attorneys. Successful divorce mediation requires each participant to listen, to communicate respectfully, and to desire to accommodate one another. Mediation does not include a win-lose outcome. Rather, each participant should reach an amicable divorce settlement that is acceptable to all involved.
