You found yourself in the middle of a divorce. Your spouse wants a divorce, and you don't know what's the best way to go about it, and you've heard about this mediation process. Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question, What does a divorce mediator do? Well, a divorce mediator, can be an attorney, but when they serve as a divorce mediator, they are acting as a neutral third person. They help the parties identify the issues, and find solutions, for those issues, such as identifying the assets and liabilities, who's going to take which assets? who's going to take which liabilities? If there are children involved, who's going to be the primary custodial parent? Who's going to be the secondary custodial parent? Who's going to pay child support? How much is that child support going to be? and if there is going to be support payments from one spouse to the other? The mediator does not make the decision, but the mediator helps the parties make the proper decisions, by asking the right questions. The parties get to decide for themselves, and in a time frame that the parties decide, what's going to happen. Who's going to do what? Who's going to get what? It's a very good process, and it's much, much less expensive than hiring attorneys, and litigating. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
