The state of Utah requires that all parties in a domestic proceeding (divorce, custody, etc.) must first participate in mediation before the court will allow them to request a trial.
Mediation is a process where an uninterested third party, usually another attorney that has no personal interest in the case, meets with both parties at the same time to help them resolve their disputes. A mediation is not binding, meaning, neither party is required to agree to what the mediator suggests. However, most of the time, the suggestions made by the mediatior are very beneficial and reasonable to both parties.
Mediation is an excellent way for both parties to work out their disputes and come to an equitable agreement in a short period of time. Mediation is also a great way to save time and money by avoiding long drawn out court battles.
