Once the documents have been refined (and in the case of the Financial Divorce or Dissolution Order and the Children`s Act Order have been approved by the court), the parties can implement the terms of their agreement. The last step would be to apply for the absolute/final divorce decree. The gist of mediation is that your lawyer is always present during the mediation process. Feel free to ask for a break to speak to your lawyer before committing to anything. If mediation does not seem pleasant to you and you find the result unfair, end the mediation session instead of accepting the conditions. Remember that in mediation, the idea is that both parties give up something in the interest of solving the problem. If the mediation agreement seems like you`re giving up too much, discuss it with your lawyer and ask if the outcome is the best alternative. .
