Different approaches to divorce mediation have relative strengths, weaknesses

In our last post, we spoke briefly about several common classifications or approaches to mediation. As we mentioned, both the facilitative and evaluative forms of mediation have as their goal to reach a settlement, but facilitative mediation aims to do so by identifying the positions and interests of the parties and helping them to come to a mutually acceptable resolution to the dispute whereas evaluative mediation focuses more on likely outcomes of litigation if the parties were to proceed to the adversarial process to resolve their dispute. By contrast to both of these approaches, transformative mediation is less focused on how a settlement can be reached and more concerned with empowering parties to make decisions.
