Mediation under this section is the process by which a neutral mediator appointed
by the court, or by a hearing officer, assists the parties in reaching a mutually
acceptable agreement as to issues of child custody, residency, visitation, parenting
time, division of property or other issues. The role of the mediator is to aid the parties in identifying the issues, reducing
misunderstandings, clarifying priorities, exploring areas of compromise and finding
points of agreement. An agreement reached by the parties is to be based on the decisions of the parties
and not the decisions of the mediator.
