Mediation is a way to resolve disputes out of court.
The mediator is a neutral party – which means they cannot give legal advice or choose sides. The mediator can educate you and your spouse about the law and the different things you need to decide on. The mediator focuses on learning what each person’s priorities are. This way the mediator can guide the conversations to help the spouses decide on solutions themselves.
For example, maybe one parent cares more about summer vacations and one cares more about March Break. The mediator helps the parents understand these things and agree on a solution that works for everyone: like maybe agreeing to a Parenting Plan that lets one parent have the kids on March Break while the other gets a little more time in the summer.
