How Does Divorce Mediation Work?
Forms of mediation differ slightly from state to state, but in all jurisdictions an impartial third party, the mediator, meets with the spouses to work out a voluntary agreement. Over the course of several sessions, our divorce mediation attorney will listen to the spouses, assesses the issues before them, and guide them toward a mutually acceptable resolution. However, the mediator cannot impose an agreement on the couple. If mediation fails, unresolved issues are held for trial.

What Are The Benefits of Divorce Mediation?
The best way to control costs during divorce is to negotiate a settlement agreement of all the ancillary issues and present it to the court for approval. Even if you don’t achieve a complete agreement, you can settle most issues and hold the remaining points over for trial. When traditional negotiations fail to resolve disputes over custody, support or property division, many couples may choose to work with a divorce mediation attorney at Kennedy & Ruhsam Law Offices, P.A..
Mediation offers the following benefits:
- Reduced costs
- Flexible scheduling
- Speedier than trial
- Protects parties from adverse court orders
Mediation has proven so useful that several states have enacted mandatory mediation before the court will schedule a hearing. In states where mediation is not automatic, a judge may order mediation before placing the case on the court calendar.
