Required Paperwork You’ll Need for Your Mediator

As you prepare for your first divorce mediation session, it’s important you gather all the necessary paperwork so you can get moving as efficiently as possible through the process. In your communications with your mediator in advance of your first appointment, he or she will provide you a detailed list of all the documentation you will need to provide.

Those documents will likely include the following:

  • Your identification

  • Prenuptial agreement paperwork, if any

  • If you have children, their birth certificates and/or Social Security cards

  • Your marriage certificate

  • Your Social Security numbers

  • Details about when and where you got married

  • Documentation for pensions, retirement annuities, investments and other funds

  • Documentation of your earnings, including tax documents or pay stubs

  • Details about any property or other assets held jointly

You and your spouse may also have already worked through some of the issues of your divorce on your own before heading to divorce mediation. You are certainly allowed to do this. If you did, bring paperwork that outlines the agreements you reached in writing so your mediator can review them. It is also highly recommended you have an attorney review those documents beforehand to make sure you are agreeing to a fair deal for those issues.

Your mediator will let you know if you need to worry about any other paperwork aside from what was listed above.
