What is Mediation?

If you and your spouse have reached an agreement or think you can come to an agreement about some or all of the issues in your case, consider using mediation.
Mediation is voluntary. A neutral person (called a mediator) helps the parties come to an agreement on the issues in your case.

  • You and your spouse control the pace of the process
  • Your case is confidential
  • Your agreement is more likely to reflect a compromise
  • Your agreement can address your specific needs and concerns
  • There is little court involvement
  • People are more likely to follow the terms of a mediated agreement than a court-imposed order.
  • To mediate about custody and visitation issues, you can work with a mediator from the Court’s Custody Mediation office once you have been given a court date.

You may also hire a private mediator. There is a fee to do private mediation.
