In the mediating process, lawyers are specifically trained to negotiate the terms of a divorce to find a consensus between all parties. The purpose of these negotiations is to help both parties reach a settlement that is equally optimal.
Divorce proceedings often fall under the process of negotiated mediating, where all three parties, attorney, reach a settlement.
