A few things to consider...
1. Schedule your free consultation to learn what mediation is and what to expect from the first session and the process as a whole.
2. Think about what you want to achieve, how you see 'this' resolving and where you would like this mediation to go.
In preparation for your divorce mediation it will be helpful if you begin gathering the following information and documentation. It is not necessary to have all of this information for the first session.
