Most important, by enabling couples to maintain a working relationship, mediation helps children overcome vulnerability to emotional distress that is inherent when their parents divorce.
The legal system values mediation as an alternative to litigation so much that California law protects communication made in mediation. For example, if either party makes a concession in mediation but later the couple chooses to litigate, that concession is not admissible in court. Thus, mediating parties are able to explore alternatives freely without the fear that any of their communications could be used against them should they need to litigate their divorce.
