How Does Family Mediation Work?


  1. Introduction: The mediator will introduce themselves and explain the process of mediation. They will also provide an overview of what to expect during the session.

  2. Ground Rules: The mediator will establish ground rules for the session. This may include guidelines for communication, confidentiality, and respectful behavior.

  3. Sharing Information: Each party will have the opportunity to share their concerns and perspective on the situation. The mediator will facilitate communication between the parties to ensure that each person feels heard and understood.

  4. Identifying Issues: The mediator will help the parties to identify the issues that need to be addressed during the mediation process. This may include property division, child custody, and support payments.

  5. Negotiation: The mediator will facilitate negotiation between the parties. This may involve brainstorming, exploring options, and identifying common ground.

  6. Reaching an Agreement: Once an agreement has been reached, the mediator will help the parties to document the agreement in writing. This agreement will then be signed by both parties and becomes legally binding.
