Mediation is a common term heard very often in United States. Almost every one is sure that the mediation is associated with divorce even though there may be people who do not know what exactly mediation is. As the word suggest, a person who stands as a middle men in any disputes with the aim of solving the issues is know as a mediator and the process can be called as mediation. The same concept applies to mediators in divorce cases also. When a couple decides to separate themselves, the usual approach is that they will consult a divorce lawyer and registers a divorce case in their name in the family court. The couple will be mentally prepared to face lot of trails and they are almost sure that the process will be so long and it will take time to complete the procedures.
In some cases, the judge will request the couples to approach a mediator in order to deal with some settlement issues. Mediator can be either a person or a body who will be sitting with both of you and listening to the entire background that are leading you to divorce. The mediator will be responsible to dig all the issues that are standing as a barrier for both of them in acquiring divorce. The key role of the mediator is to bring out all the possibilities in solving the issues. They can just tell the couple that certain possibilities exist to get this issue corrected and if they are willing can proceed with the necessary steps accordingly to get the issue solved. Mediator has no rights to restrict or impose any terms and conditions on either of them. Also the mediator is not allowed to stand in favor of any of the parties. Mediation works very smoothly in case of uncontested divorce but not in case of contested divorce as the parties will not be agreeing for any mutual settlements.
It is also possible for a couple to walk straight to a mediation center under mutual agreement when they decide to separate without going to court of law. This has its own benefits in getting a quick divorce without spending much when compared to all the usual proceedings.
