CAN MEDIATION BE USED AS A FORM OF COUNSELING TO FIX OUR MARRIAGE PROBLEMS?

Mediation is not a tool to repair a damaged marriage relationships.  It is assumed that when parties seek matrimonial mediation, ultimate separation and/or divorce is inevitable.  While being mindful of the tremendous emotional component of separation and divorce, the Mediator will not focus the process on previous misdeeds or hurtful actions.  Instead, the Mediator will guide the parties to the common goal of resolving all issues with as little turmoil, time and expense as possible.

Short of seeking separation or divorce, a couple can utilize mediation to resolve disputes or issues in a marriage, or family issues, so long as such goals are discussed with the Mediator at the start of the mediation.
