Divorce mediation is done in a cooperative manner, where the mediator works for the couple, not for one party of the other. It is best suited for cases that are less acrimonious, where the separating couple can work together to find a solution that works for both. This is especially helpful when children are involved, as they are not caught in the conflict. Most people find that mediation costs a fraction of what traditional litigation costs.
