A Lawyer’s Role in Mediation

simple divorce Ontario

An option available to divorcing parties is mediation. Such an option is more likely to go smoothly when each spouse has a legal advisor. A legal adviser is a lawyer who is willing to consult with you as a part of the mediation process. This article will discuss divorce mediation and legal advisors roles in the mediation proceedings and process.

In recent times divorcing couples have started to turn to mediation and as a result this has lessened the need for traditional consulting lawyers. However, this has resulted in the increased need of a legal adviser who is willing to consult with the divorcing spouse as an integral part of the mediation process. Therefore, it is very common for many divorce lawyers to become mediators and the same lawyers are happy to work as consulting lawyers on cases that do not require mediation.
