Finding a trustworthy divorce mediator

California residents who are thinking about getting a divorce may consider mediation as a tool for resolving complicated separation issues. When choosing the right divorce mediator, experience, professional background and cost are all factors that should be considered. However, it is perhaps most important that the mediator is someone that both parties can trust.

During the initial consultation, prospective clients will have to gauge the trustworthiness of the mediator. An honest mediator will be able to communicate clearly and directly. He or she should be able to provide a thorough and unbiased explanation of the how mediation works, particularly how it differs from litigation processes. The mediator should be transparent regarding his or her fee structure and explain what both parties can expect.

A good mediator should also have an efficient method for coming up with solutions that will be beneficial to all parties in a divorce. Having a strategic and well-organized process is a key indication that a mediator understands mediation theory.

A mediator is expected to practice a high degree of impartiality. However, this does not mean that a mediator should not respond to the clients' emotions or thoughts. A professional will be respectful of both parties and strive to facilitate a separation that is as stress-free as possible.

Divorce mediation can be used to address and find solutions for difficult divorce issues without engaging in a costly litigation process. An attorney may advise whether mediation is the best option to use to achieve a fair resolution to a divorce.
