Mediation is a process for couples or families to communicate directly about disputes, such as divorce, and resolve them with the help of a neutral mediator. Mediation is a less adversarial, healing alternative to divorce through litigation. While litigation focuses on the past (tending to increase defensiveness and resentment), mediation is a future-focused process where parties decide how they will solve their problems, not the courts. It is quicker and costs much less than dispute resolution through litigation.
