How to Choose a Divorce Mediator
What to do when you think you can amicably settle your divorce.
Choosing to Mediate rather than LitigateWhen you first think of divorce you should decide whether you and your spouse can be respectful to each other in working out your differences. If so no matter what the topic or dispute you should consider mediating rather than litigating.
Choosing the Right MediatorHow you choose a mediator is very important. Mediators are either lawyers, accountants or psychologists. It is best to choose the right one for your issues. A lawyer is the most well rounded. A lawyer knows the law as it applies to your issues. Once you decide on the type of mediator you will choose the actual mediator. Ask around. Who has used this mediator and were they satisfied. Call a lawyer and ask for a recommendation. Check the website, social media and advertising sites for reviews and endorsements. Check the professional association to see if the potential mediator has had any disciplinary actions. Check the mediator's experience.
