Mediation is one of a number of options for resolving disputes over money or children between separating couples, which avoids going to Court.
The mediator is an impartial, experienced family lawyer who will help the parties explore the possibilities for resolving any conflict and will facilitate negotiations. If an agreement is reached through mediation, the mediator will prepare a document called a Memorandum of Understanding which reflects the terms of settlement agreed.
