A "Rule 31 Mediation" is an informal process in which a Rule 31 Mediator conducts discussions among the parties that is designed to enable them to reach a mutually acceptable agreement among themselves on all or any part of disputed issues.
In most contested domestic law cases, especially divorce and custody cases, Courts require the parties to attend a good-faith mediation before setting a final hearing. Mediation is often the last and best chance for parties to save thousands of dollars, and months or years of heartache and family devastation, litigation brings.
Agreements made by people about their own lives and families are almost always better than harsh, even if well-intentioned, results from judges who, looking in from outside, can never truly know a family.
