Even if a divorce goes through the court system, many times a judge will order mediation to see if the opposing parties can work out an agreement to save both time and money. Mediation is a legal process in which a third-party person, or mediator helps parties negotiate their differences to achieve a quicker resolution and settlement. If, however, the parties are unwilling or unable to settle in mediation, their case returns to the court for trial.
