Prepare well for your divorce mediation ahead of time. If you come feeling prepared to make decisions and know your bottom line, the negotiations will go more smoothly and quickly, and you will be more likely to come away feeling like you have a fair agreement. Consult an attorney, your tax person, financial advisor, your best friend, websites, family members – whoever you know has your best interests at heart. Educate yourself on the Utah Courts website and others that will help you get ready to present your case to your spouse and to the mediator in a confident but cooperative way. Be prepared to negotiate, and understand that you may not come away “getting” everything you want – but you will come away knowing that the agreement is fair. You may find that things come out in the mediation you were not aware of or prepared for, and these things may change your view – be prepared to listen, not just talk. A mediator is a neutral party and is working for both of you to help you reach a fair agreement and at the end of the day, the goal is for both parties to feel like it was a win-win. In litigation, there is always a win-lose, and that is what we strive to avoid. Below are some links to other pages on this website that may help you on various issues.

Mrs. Richards - Thanks for the presentation it was interesting & helpful.
The presentation was great. I really liked it and learned alot. Thanks :)
First of all I’d like to say thanks. I don’t have the best role models for relationships. I thought your class was beneficial. I learned because people struggle is their own fault and its their jobs to fix that situation is in their hands. Thank you.
One thing that was the best was the Jerk qualities. It helped show me what I want to look for and qualities I need to keep myself from having.
I thought that your presentation was good & helpful. It made me realize a lot of things. It also helped me let go of a failed relationship; it made me realize she was really a Jerk. Thank you so much!
