If you and the other spouse has begun with the negotiations during the divorce mediation, the mediator will first identify the minor issues and address them accordingly. This is to make sure that trust, no matter how small, is built between the parties. Also, this will facilitate a better flow of communication, making negotiation even better.
Doing negotiation for agreements, such as in a divorce, may not be the same during the entire process. There will come a time that the parties have to undergo some level of misunderstanding, and that such must be addressed first before the others. When it comes to this, hiring a divorce mediator will make sure that you have your options in check.
