Co-mediation means having two mediators. Sometimes there may be very complex property and financial issues emerging in the sessions. These complex issues may require the expertise of another mediator, a lawyer or accountant. The mediator will suggest the benefit, and should there be an agreement by both parties, the mediator will arrange for co-mediation.
