Divorce does not have to end up in the courtroom. In fact, most family disputes don’t get that far. So how are disputes resolved so that each party member has their rights expressed?
Mediation is one option – a process, voluntarily chosen by the parties in dispute, that aims to have the parties arrive to their own amicable agreement.
A neutral, third party will act as the mediator. The mediator will facilitate dialogue between the couple to create a foundation for negotiation between the parties. There is no winning or losing here – this is a respectful approach to ensure that each member maintains recognition of their needs.
