What else can I do to prepare?

Perhaps the most important thing any mediating party can do to ensure a satisfying and successful mediation experience is to prepare for the mediation discussions by seeking clarity as to his or her desired outcomes and perceived standards of fairness. Further, prepare two copies of documentation of income, assets and debts. Also, seeking information from your employers concerning the breakdown of insurance plans and clarification of retirement and other employee related perks will assist in expediting the mediation process.
