What Can a Mediator Do to Help a Divorcing Couple?

A family law mediator is specially trained to help divorcing spouses obtain a resolution to their divorce issues. The mediator is responsible for facilitating the communication between both parties during the mediation process to ensure that each party is provided with uninterrupted time to speak. The mediator also asks questions to make the points of each party clearer, and requests any party to repeat the statement or explain a point if necessary. Also, the mediator gives information about how the legal system works, how the judge may view the couple’s issues, and potential alternatives for resolving issues. The mediator will then help the couple find ways to resolve the matter in a way that’s acceptable to both of them.
