The presence of a third party mediator who is trained in resolving disputes is just the thing that can help calm down the partners, enable constructive communication and arrive at a mutually beneficial agreement.
When there is a divorce, there are a lot of loose ends to be tied up. There are questions about how finances, assets and debts are to be handled, arrangements regarding child custody, how the various personal items acquired during the marriage are to be divided up fairly.
It is not possible for both parties under the circumstances to be content with the resolution of these problems, but it is always possible to reach a solution satisfactory to both parties. The method used to arrive at a consensus on these disputes is called mediation.
It is carried out through discussions with the help of a trained mediator who can counsel both parties to arrive at the best possible solution. But for a mediation to be successful, some parameters must be taken into account.
