In divorce mediation, the spouses meet together with a neutral mediator, whose role is to facilitate discussion and provide broad based, unbiased advice.  Apart from the mediator, the meeting is strictly confidential, and is similar in that way to collaborative divorce.  The mediator informs the couple about what the law might provide them, and pinpoints areas where an expert such as an accountant or mental health professional may need to be brought in for consultation.

Although neither spouse is required to hire their own attorney, it is often beneficial for each to have consulted their own individual counsel before finalizing an agreement.
