Parties wishing to resolve their divorce without family litigation can take advantage of family mediation. Divorce mediation can take place before you file in family court or after you’ve done so in a case where the parties will be representing themselves.
Mediation is less formal than a court proceeding. The process itself is meant to give you control of the outcome. This means that a mediator, regardless of his or her professional background (lawyer, retired judge, etc) cannot make decisions for you nor can they give you legal advice on any issue.
