Mediation is a means that people use to resolve the matters that take place in their divorce. Generally speaking, mediation allows a couple to have open lines of communication to get to the bottom of their issues and find a resolution that may work for everyone. There are a number of different factors that are handled in mediation, including child support, child custody, spousal maintenance, the division of assets and debts, and any other unresolved factors that need to be handled in the divorce.
There are certain situations where a court may order a couple to attend mediation so they can resolve a matter. If a couple is having a dispute over an issue in their divorce, they may be ordered to attend mediation services to work it out themselves. Hopefully, the couple can attend mediation and come to a compromise but if they can’t, the court may have to ultimately just make a decision for them. Of course, it all depends on the circumstances surrounding each individual situation because no two cases or couples are exactly the same.
