Jane can act as your Mediator and help you and your spouse reach an agreement that feels fair for both of you.
In a mediation setting, two parties jointly retain a Mediator who facilitates the negotiation process between parties.
The Mediator is a lawyer or an expert in a particular field such as social worker or a financial professional.
The role of the Mediator is to help the parties engage in a discussion about important issues and canvass information that might help the parties generate settlement options.
The parties may attend mediation with or without lawyers, although it may be advisable to have lawyers present.
The Mediator may give legal information but does not provide legal opinions.
After a mediation, the parties must consult family lawyers to obtain independent legal advice separately.
