What are the steps of mediation?

Before entering into mediation, be sure to consult your review attorney so you have all of the information you need to move forward. This ensures that you will have a consultant throughout the entire process to touch base with if any problems occur. Next, you want to find a skilled mediator who can help you mutually devise a settlement agreement that both parties can live with.

Once a mediator gets you almost to the finish line, it’s time for a review attorney to take over. A review attorney should fairly and competently fold all of your hard work, generally called a “Memorandum of Understanding,” into a complete and legally enforceable Marital Settlement Agreement. If the MOU comes back with significant flaws, it will be necessary to contact your attorney to sort them out through a renegotiation of the terms.

After you have your “Marital Settlement Agreement,” you will need a skilled attorney to get you in and out of court for your uncontested Divorce, and on your way to your new life!
