Mediation is not the right forum to settle your differences if your spouse threatens, intimidates, or physically harms your partner. A restraining order puts a physical barrier between you and your spouse. This makes it legally impossible for the mediator to meet with both the mediator and the parties.
Mediation can work if both spouses are able to behave civilly and don't put pressure on the other. The mediator's primary job is to even the playing field and give each spouse equal access to the discussion. An experienced mediator acts as a neutral third party and doesn't tell one spouse what to do. He/she instead teach the couple how they can discuss every issue, brainstorm solutions, and reach a mutually beneficial agreement.
The mediator may recommend that the couple settle their differences in court using their individual attorneys if there is no agreement on any of the issues. In Denver, a divorce mediator will generally cost less than litigation, and it will be easier to get your divorce. However, it is important to remember that both spouses must cooperate in order to achieve success.
