If you or someone you know is considering divorce or mediation they should speak with an attorney who has knowledge on both. Mediation is a voluntary method used for conflict resolution. Mediation is an alternative to divorce. Mediation is preffered due to the lower cost. Divorce can be long and drawn out an can be more costly. Divorce is not always costly, it will depend if the party on the other side is agreeable.
In a mediation session the mediator is a neutral third party. The mediator used must remain unbiased throughout the entire process. The two parties must voluntarily decide to attend mediation. The neutral third party mediatior is there to facilitate constructive dialogue between the two parties. The mediator is not there to give there advice or solutions for a problem the parties are facing. It is up to the parties alone to work out an amicable agreement.
