An excellent article, by Mary McCoy from MoneyCrashers.com, about divorce mediation.
"The assumption that drives mediation is that divorcing spouses – even when they have irreconcilable differences – understand their situation more clearly and can make better individual decisions on their family’s behalf than the court system can. A mediation can prevent couples from viewing the divorce in terms of “winning” or “losing” a battle, and instead see it as an opportunity for a fresh start, which is especially important if children are part of the equation."
Ms. McCoy does an excellent job in describing the involvement of the mediator and a typical mediation session, provides a cost comparison to a litigated divorce, and outlining the advantages and disadvantages of divorce mediation.
