What To Bring To Your First Mediation Appointment

Preparing The Information You Need To Get Started

Your Mediation Begins

Welcome to mediation with Peace Talks. Most people start with a free mediation orientation.   Most orientations last 20 – 40 minutes depending on how many questions you have.

At your first divorce mediation session, you’ll want to come prepared with some basic information to help make the process more efficient. The better informed you are about your assets, liabilities, children’s schedules, and your goals for the outcome of your situation, the more progress we can make in your mediation session.

Below is a list of forms covering personal and child-centered issues to review. They will give you an idea of what kind of information you can prepare. It’s not necessary to fill out each of these forms before your first appointment, but using them may help you get organized so that you can make the most of your time during the mediation sessions.
