Can my spouse and I go to mediation to settle our divorce?

Written by: Megan Dell


Mediation is a meeting during which you and the opposing party have the assistance of a third-party mediator — typically an attorney — to talk through the issues in your case and try to settle your divorce. South Carolina Family Courts require parties to attend mediation before scheduling a contested trial.

The attorneys at Dell Family Law, P.C. are always willing to attend mediation, as it is very effective for settling cases. However, it is important to first enough information (such as about assets, debts, and income) before attending mediation or you will not be able to meaningfully negotiate.
