What is divorce mediation?

Divorce mediation is an informal process to resolve your divorce without court.  Mediation has advantages.    It is typically less expensive and it is private.  Mediation can be binding or nonbinding.  Binding means that you have given up the right to have a judge decide your case.  Whatever the mediator says goes.  Nonbinding mediation means that you can agree or disagree.  if you disagree, you can still have a trial with a judge.
