Mediation is ordinarily not involved in uncontested or no-fault divorce cases, because the parties have agreed, or intend to agree, on all issues of division of marital property and debt, child custody, and alimony. Under certain circumstances, mediation may be utilized before divorce or child custody papers are filed with the court to attempt to make a potentially contested divorce uncontested.
If your divorce is contested, you will almost certainly be required to attend mediation prior to a final hearing or trial of your case. In that case, your attorney will help you to prepare for mediation and should either attend with you or be available by phone in case you have any questions during the mediation.
