Does it take both spouses to initiate a divorce mediation?

Both spouses need to be ready and willing to mediate, but it is not absolutely necessary that you each initiate mediation together. Our office tries to meet with a couple together to ensure you are both engaged in the process, and to avoid any perception favoritism at the early stages of a mediation. Our office often hears from one spouse, initially, and will request that a date be schedule at a time convenient to both spouses. This way, neither spouse feels left out of the process early in the mediation.
