You want a divorce.
And you want to mediate.
Which is more than I knew when my ex-husband and I made the decision to end our marriage.
We hadn't ever heard of mediation. All we knew is we wanted to get an uncontested divorce without lawyers and respectfully resolve our issues out of court. And we didn't want to go broke in the process.
A friend told me about mediation and I found a divorce mediator near me. And luckily, my divorce went quite smoothly. My now ex-husband and I completed the process in a few months and our entire divorce cost less than we would have spent on the attorney retainers alone.
But as you probably already know, making the decision to use mediation is only a small part of the divorce process.
You also need to figure out how to find a mediator for divorce who is competent and qualified.
Because the mediator you hire to guide you through the divorce process is just as important as the decision to use mediation itself.
So what are the criteria to use when evaluating the qualifications of a mediator? And what do you need to know about how to find a good divorce mediator and determine if the person you're considering is competent and best qualified to help you?
Luckily you've come to the right place because those questions and more will be answered in this post...
