Divorce Mediation is a way to work out disputes in a divorce case with the help of a third party (the mediator) to avoid court and a trial. There is no judge during the mediation and the mediator is not supposed to represent any party or provide any legal advice. While mediation is a way to avoid a trial, cases may still go to trial if the parties are not able to reach an agreement.
