No, mediation is not a tool for repairing a marriage, but instead a process designed to create a rational, mutually beneficial divorce settlement when the marriage ends.
Mediation is entirely different from counseling or other approaches that are designed to help couples address problems in the relationship with the goal of repairing and renewing the marriage.
Most couples who end up divorcing spend a lot of time considering it before filing. If your marriage is having problems, counseling may be very beneficial.
If that process leads you to believe your marriage can’t be saved, mediation is a way to achieve a divorce with minimal acrimony, reduced costs, and often, a better outcome for both parties.
