When you select a divorce mediator, find out and ask them whether or not they are certified. Get their background. Divorce lawyers know the process of divorce mediation. They know what it takes to represent both sides. I’ve been a certified divorce mediator for 15 years. I handle mediations all the time. People like myself, or other lawyers that are divorce lawyers that are certified divorce mediators, in my opinion, is where you should go, in order to find out if that person can effectively mediate your divorce case.
