How can I prepare for Mediation?

Before beginning the process the most important question you should ask – is, “what is it that I truly want?” Going into the mediation session with this question answered can help you slice through all the extraneous issues and lend to making your mediation the most effective tool it can be to get you to an mutually acceptable agreement. Being prepared also helps you go into the mediation in a interest-based “thinking mode”, rather than an emotional “reactive mode”.

Additionally, during the mediation you will be asked to provide financial information including tax returns, bank and mortgage statements, W-2s, information about insurance policies (medical, life, auto), and financial information regarding other investments or family businesses and it is a good idea to begin to gather this information.
