What are the ethical guidelines of mediation?

By Laura M. Urbik Kern

You have to be neutral across the board. If you're advocating for anybody, it's for the kids. You can't disclose anything that's heard within mediation nor can the parties for that matter, I suppose. But they can't call the mediator to testify. Ethically, you go in there and you try your best to get the parties to come to some agreement. That's what our job is.
