In New York, one of the ways that parties can help resolve the problems in their divorce is to go through mediation. When you go through the mediation process, you have an individual, the mediator, who has been trained in that process. The mediator does not have to be licensed and does not have to be an attorney. The job of the mediator is to help you come to an agreement. In other words, as you discuss the different items, whether it be child support or custody, you and your spouse come to the agreement. The mediator is the person that helps you get there. The mediator is not the person who tells you what should happen. This is a process of which the clients are mainly in control.
