Mediation is simply a means by which the parties can reach an agreement, especially when there is a child involved to handle issues regarding child custody, child support and other matters amicably. This not only encourages you and your soon to be ex spouse to work together to resolve your differences, but also sets a positive and encouraging example for your children.
