It is a misconception that only the most amicable couples can successfully navigate the mediation process. While mediation does require that both parties be willing to talk through issues, listen, and eventually come to settlements, it does not require couples to “get along” or agree on every topic. In fact, mediators fully understand that couples that are divorcing will have arguments and disagreements during their split. A contentious couple may take longer to finish the mediation process, but it is certainly possible, especially with the help of a trained, neutral mediator to guide both people to a compromise or workable solution.
