Mediation is a proven way for couples to separate and divorce with minimum cost and conflict. However, some feel uncomfortable going forward without attorneys, or need support in mediating with more financially sophisticated spouses. Team Mediationsm is a structured process carefully designed by the Center for Mediation & Training, Inc. (the Center). This process allows individuals to reap the benefits of mediation while, at the same time affording each party the protection and guidance of their own attorney. In addition, it is a process that takes full advantage of specialists such as financial planners, creating a better life post-divorce.
