Frequently Asked Questions: Divorce Mediation

Does mediation mean I won’t have to go to court?

If the mediation is successful and results in a written agreement, the agreement can be submitted to the court for approval and for the court to enter an order. In a divorce in Massachusetts, the parties will need to attend an uncontested divorce hearing in which the agreement is presented, and the judge must make a finding that it is fair and reasonable under the circumstances in order to approve it.
