I have put together some information, as a Divorce Mediator, as well as a Couples Counselor:

Think about who you want to mediate your divorce process.
Who do you trust guiding you and having your best interests?
Think about the personality of the person and how well they “play with others.” Is your mediator someone humble enough that she/he knows they need to forever continue their education, and give back to the field or is it the person who is a lone wolf or hypercompetitive?
Do you want someone who is willing to give information out for free or hoard it?
Is it someone who has a “one size fits all” approach?
Is it someone who can get you connected to experts or the person who thinks they know all the aspects of divorce process?
Do you want someone who knows the topics but can also deal with your feelings?
Do you want someone who is warm and fuzzy and can be empathetic?
Do you want someone whose office returns your calls?
