The Modern Woman's Divorce Guide provides a number of tools for divorcing women, including how to score the mediator (Yes, I know, I could have said that better).

Take a look at;

Mediator Interview Questionnaire - questions to interview mediators and find the best match, including;

What are your opinions about divorce?
What are your opinions about child custody and visitation
How many mediation matters or clients do you currently have?

Mediator Evaluation Worksheet - for recording important facts about the mediators and any assistants, including;

Did the receptionist handle my telephone calls pleasantly and confidently? Yes/No
If the mediator wasn’t available, did the receptionist know when he/she would be available? Yes/No
During my office visit, did the receptionist greet me warmly? Yes/No
Did the receptionist mention other clients’ names while in my presence? Yes/No
Did the staff discuss other cases within my earshot? Yes/No

Legit or BS?
