It is the impartial divorce mediator’s responsibility to provide structure and ensure a safe environment for communication. The divorce mediator also manages conflict, collects and organizes data, provides education, conducts negotiations, and assists the parties in evaluating options. Once the parties have reached an agreement, the mediator will draft and file the necessary court documents.

Whereas litigation may take from nine months to two years, the divorce mediation process allows flexibility outside the limited legal remedies available at law, with the clients determining the pace of the process. Nothing happens without mutual consent. Resources are conserved while preserving options for future litigation or arbitration. The parties may decide to participate in mediation at any time without limiting their future legal options.

A divorce lawyer mediator does not give either party independent legal advice. At a mutually agreed upon time during the mediation process the lawyer mediator will provide the parties with any legal information they request. They may or may not decide to use this information when constructing an agreement. Some wish to reach an agreement without knowledge of the likely court outcome while others choose to use the possible outcome as a framework for their agreement. Once the resulting agreement has been drafted, the parties must then take it to an independent lawyer for review. Once any final revisions are made, the divorce lawyer mediator will prepare and file the necessary paperwork with the court.
