Mediation Law is a method of resolving disputes involving a neutral third party (the mediator) who assists the parties in fashioning mutually agreeable, legally acceptable solutions for their disputed issues. This form of dispute resolution is ideal for parties who are willing to communicate with one another and are open to exploring their own legally acceptable remedies outside of litigation.
Many people believe that if they enter into a Mediated Agreement, there is no need for the parties to go to court or appear before a Judge. That is not accurate. The Court must review the Mediated Agreement to ensure that it is fair and reasonable for both parties in light of the particular facts and circumstances of each case, and approve the divorce.
