Mediation is voluntary and requires participation by both the husband and the wife. You do not have to be in agreement on any or all issues, but you do need to possess a good faith willingness to attempt to reach a settlement.
Mediation allows divorcing couples to discuss and decide how they will split financial assets rather than allowing a judge to do so. The couple will share the cost of mediation rather than each paying their own attorney. This process is conciliatory rather than adversarial.

“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often the real loser-in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”
