Kentucky family law: Is mediation right for you?

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method where all involved parties come together to talk over the issue at hand -- such as divorce or child custody problems, among others. The mediator oversees the mediation process.  All parties, their attorneys, and the mediator will be present during the session. A mediator is a neutral party who does not represent either side.
