What issues can be resolved at mediation?

Money IssuesAny issues, large or small, can be dealt with and resolved at mediation. Ideally, when the parties in a divorce, child custody or family law dispute mediate their case, the parties can reach an agreement on all issues, including division of assets and debts, maintenance, and all parenting issues including parenting time, decision making, and child support. Sometimes the parties are only able to agree on some issues, not all of them, but even in those instances a mediation can be successful, because it simplifies the rest of the case and makes an eventual settlement of all issues more likely to occur further down the road.

Also, in many counties in Colorado the parties in a divorce, child custody, or family law case are always required to mediate prior to a temporary orders hearing. In those cases, the parties may be able to settle temporary issues, which would allow the parties to dispense with the temporary orders hearing, even if the parties do not come to an agreement on permanent issues at the time.
