Family law mediation is a voluntary process in which a couple meets with a neutral third party attorney to discuss and resolve issues. Mediators provide information about the law and the legal process but does not represent either party. Mediation is a “party-centered” process to help couples reach agreements outside of the courtroom. The couple is advised to seek their own counsel after an agreement has been reached.
