Couples work together with mediators to reach agreements regarding parenting issues and schedules, financial issues such as child support, division of marital property, spousal maintenance, tax implications and others. Any decisions can be put into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by the mediators. The MoU summarizes the agreements reached by the parties in meditation and can be reviewed by an attorney and incorporated into a legal document for separation or divorce.
