Mediation is a process where you, your spouse, and a third-party mediator work together to negotiate how to live separately as divorced persons.
Mediation can save time and money, and is usually less emotionally damaging than a full-blown court battle.
Together, you and your spouse, with the help of the mediator, can work out an agreement acceptable to both of you.
The agreement is as good as an order made by the judge. The agreement is drafted by the mediator, signed by you, your spouse and a judge.
