All parties in divorce and custody cases are required by the court to attend a mediation education class. This can be done online or in person. Parties with minor children must also attend a parenting class.
While this class is available to anyone, it is primarily offered for those without minor children.
Mediators for Settlement Conferences are mediators who are attorneys and can give a legal opinion as long as your attorney is present. Settlement Conferences are frequently used close to trial or when parties are in a position to resolve their entire case. Ideally attorneys would be present (if a party is using an attorney), and the parties would be ready to finalize their agreements at the time of mediation.
There are many kinds of mediators. Mediators have different styles and philosophies. Choose the style that works best for you.
