Mediation sessions are a less formal approach to divorce conflict resolution. This is not the most widely known approach to divorce resolution, but it is an option. The mediation session as an alternative allows for both parties to voluntary attend a meeting session. In addition, the mediation sessions are less costly for all parties involved.
In a mediation session both parties have the opportunity to put all of their issues on the table. During the session the parties will attempt to reach a fair and amicable agreement between one another. Furthermore, the mediator will be present during the entire session to ensure the meetings run smoothly. The mediator will not give advice on how to resolve a situation. Mediator's are trained to utilize the skills acquired to encourage productive and positive environments for discussion.
To locate a mediator it is important to research several local attorneys in your area to compare the process and the prices. The prices may vary depending on the mediator you choose. You will want to speak to several mediator's before making a final decision. In addition, some individual's will also seek the advice, or referral of those they know, such as friends and family.
