Divorce Lawyers, Attorneys and Mediation

The business of divorce is undergoing drastic changes. About 70% of people are doing their divorces without lawyers. Divorce attorneys are now calling themselves mediators.
If you are looking for a mediator/lawyer, be sure to check credentials, such as mediation training. There are no legal requirements for calling oneself a mediator.
Basic divorce mediation calls for 40 hours of training.
Ask how long a person has been mediating. But a new mediator with good training should not be rejected.
Ask how many divorce mediations the attorney has completed.
Meet with more than one mediating attorney before choosing the one you feel comfortable with for your divorce.
