Dear Attorneys,

How does mediation work? My spouse wants to us a mediator, and I thought we should both have our own attorneys. What is the difference anyway?


Weary of Mediation


Dear Weary,

Mediation is when parties choose to use a neutral third party, generally an attorney certified in mediation, to work with the parties to mediate, or facilitate, an agreement. In divorces, a mediator works with both parties, remains neutral, cannot dispense advice to either party, but does ultimately (usually) draft a mediated divorce agreement for the parties to enter in court.

However, both parties are still encouraged to get their own representation so that they have someone to advocate on their behalf and review the mediator’s work with their client’s interests in mind specifically.

Wolf & Shore Law Group mediates agreements and, also serves as review counsel for agreements that have already been mediated.  There are plenty of options, and Wolf & Shore Law Group can help you find what works for you!
