Why You Should Hire a Divorce Attorney as Your Mediator


Divorce attorneys know the law. Mediators who are not well versed in family law may not be as prepared on the legal ramifications of your divorce proceeding as divorce attorneys. Mediators are not required to be trained in the law nor are they even required to be certified. Understandably, you have arrived at mediation to avoid litigation. However, it is unrealistic and unwise to segregate the law from your divorce. Therefore, when choosing a divorce mediator, try and find someone who is not only certified in mediation, but is also an experienced divorce attorney.
