If you and your spouse can meet together with a neutral mediator and feel you can negotiate about finances and parenting responsibilities, mediation may be right for you. During separation or divorce communication can break down quickly, the mediator is there to help guide you through the process and support a solution-focused discussion and promote a resolution.
Mediation can work with married, non-married, and same-sex couples.
Mediation works best when both participants are able to fully express their needs and interests and are capable of following through on agreements. If there are any concerns regarding domestic violence, child abuse, or mental illness mediation may not be the best choice for conflict resolution.
