What Questions Will I Be Asked in Mediation

There are many reasons that may lead to a married couple choosing mediation as their option for divorce. This is because divorce mediation offers many advantages that a litigated divorce cannot. For instance, in a mediated divorce instead of having to communicate through your attorneys, both spouses can communicate their needs and wishes directly with one another. This will all be done under the supervision and counsel of a licensed and trained mediator. Your mediator will be there to ensure both parties are being heard and that they are able to reach a divorce agreement that is not one-sided. The divorce mediator is there to serve as a third party who will remain as a neutral negotiator between both spouses. This will help to maintain a productive and fair balance between both spouses as they work together. It is important to realize that mediation in a divorce only works in cases where the couple is willing to work together to reach a solution for the division of their property and responsibilities. Combative couples, or couples with aggressive spouses may not be able to use divorce mediation as a way to resolve their issues and reach an agreement for their divorce.

Listed below are some of the questions that may be asked in mediation:


-What are your goals in this divorce? What do you personally wish to achieve in the divorce agreement?

-What do you believe your ex is trying to achieve in this divorce agreement? Do these wishes conflict with your own?

-When negotiating for what you wish to achieve, what are you willing to do to help the other party achieve what they want? Are you realistically able to provide these solutions?

-If you have children, do you share common goals about how they will spend time between both parents?

-Are you being open to reaching an agreement? Are you willing to let go of animosity in order to negotiate for a divorce agreement that works for both parties?

-Are you being honest about listing your total assets?
