What Can Be Decided At Divorce Mediation?

Parents can use divorce mediation sessions to work out child custody and child visitation schedules. The divorce mediation process can help parents work out a long-term parenting plan that will best serve the children and parents.

The divorce mediator may also make suggestions to both parties about what might be considered fair in the division of debts and assets. Before attending divorce mediation, you might want to talk with a divorce lawyer so you're informed about how the divorce court might rule on your case if an agreement cannot be reached. This insight can help you make good decisions during the divorce mediation process.
