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;

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
