Dear Attorneys,


My husband and I are considering mediation or collaborative divorce. We have also heard about co-mediators. What are the differences?




Carefully Considering


Dear Carefully,


In general, mediation involves both parties jointly hiring one neutral individual (the mediator). However, you could also choose to hire two mediators and then they would work together as co-mediators. They would remain neutral parties and they would need to agree to work together. Some people prefer this method because many people feel as though it is helpful to have two different people, with different perspectives, help to mediate.  Collaborative law, on the other hand, is a little different. Rather than have one mediator, each party will have an attorney and the attorneys will work together with other professionals, such as mental health professionals, a financial advisor and/or an accountant, as necessary.
