Mediation can save a lot of time, money and emotional energy.

However, when couples have complicated assets or complicated emotional issues,  this kind of case may not be suitable for mediation.

One Important Tip

      However, if you choose to use a lawyer to mediate your divorce, you and your spouse need to attend the initial meeting together.  If one of you attends alone, the attorney will most likely have a problem acting as a mediator since a relationship will have been formed between you and the lawyers.

So, best if the two of you visit the lawyer/mediator together to start.
