If you have decided to pursue mediation as a tool to settle the terms of your divorce, it is important to find a divorce mediator that is a good fit for you and your soon to be ex-spouse. Finding the best divorce mediator for your case can help you find areas of compromise and will be a key to the success of the process.
How to Choose the Best Mediator for You? Once you identify a short list of potential mediators then it is wise to actually set up time to meet with 2-3 mediators to determine which one you feel is the best divorce mediator for your situation. During this meeting you can share your goals for the process and ask questions about each mediator’s experience and approach to the process. It is important to remember that both parties must agree to participate in the mediation process. It is a voluntary process – and participants cannot be forced to participate.
What should you look for in a mediator?
1. Remain neutral during the divorce settlement process;
2. Treat both parties with respect and in a fair manner;
3. Offer resources and information about the legal process of divorce as guidance about steps to take to reach resolution;
4. Offer affordable mediation services;
5. Be available for mediation sessions quickly;
6. Have specific and longstanding divorce mediation experience;
7. Be compassionate and a good problem solver;
8. Offer references;
9. Be appropriately licensed and certified.
