Mediation in divorce is now mandatory in many counties in Washington. The courts require you to attend mediation, which is a settlement conference. The mediator is a trained professional, trained in the area of family law who tries to help both parties come to an agreement. The mediator does not decide the case, the mediator simply facilitates both parties on compromising where they feel like they can compromise to reach an agreement to avoid the expense and the hostility and the angst of a trial.
