What Is Divorce Mediation?
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) method that involves going in front of a lawyer mediator and working through the many aspects of a divorce without going to court. Each side is normally represented by an attorney. Anything said to the mediator is kept strictly confidential; a mediator cannot testify for either side in Court. When an agreement is reached, the parties and their lawyers sign a Mediation Settlement Agreement, MSA. The MSA cannot be revoked.
