A mediator is a neutral facilitator who builds consensus between parties and documents their agreement. Separation agreements made at mediation are legally binding and enforceable like a court order when filed with the court. A mediator neither gives legal advice nor makes the decisions for you. Mediation is a confidential process where a decision is made by the parties instead of being imposed upon you.
