How do I prepare for mediation?

Participants in mediation should gather any information that they foresee being relevant to the issues in their case. Bring relevant and organized financial documents. For a divorce case, bring a list of your assets, balances of your bank accounts, retirement funds, tax returns, income information, financial affidavits, a list of property values, etc. For your debts, include the balance for each debt and the monthly payments for each. Bring proof of all accounts and debts and consider making an organized spreadsheet. Come prepared to negotiate not argue. Try to maintain control of your emotions.
