Mediation is cheaper than going to court, and can be less stressful and combative. So, generally, good candidates for mediation are couples who want to save money, and who want a better process for themselves and their children. But isn’t that almost everyone?
What else do you need? It helps if you are compromise-minded, and prepared to think about the future, rather than focus on rehashing past arguments; if you can look at the big picture rather than get stuck on small details. Mostly, to make mediation successful, you need to be able to communicate with your spouse in a reasonable manner, and have some ability to work together. Mediation may not be the right choice for everyone. But if you can make it work, the process can be a much better alternative to litigation.
