More about the Process
Guide the couple to create a better atmosphere for problem solving which allows them to see from the viewpoint of the "larger picture".
As in a traditional divorce, each spouse will need an attorney. However, in mediation, the lawyers act as advisers rather than adversarial negotiators. Early in the process, the divorcing couple is encouraged by Ms. Newcomer to seek legal advice about their rights and obligations.

The divorce will then proceed through the courts as uncontested - saving the divorcing couple a significant amount of MONEY as well as EMOTIONAL DISTRESS. here's much to see here.
