We're considering doing a mediation for our divorce before we have to go to court. The usual reasons like wanting to keep it civil for the kids (we have 2). My wife is 100% on board and I like the idea too but I worry about how secure the process is. I guess I have this movie image idea of a mediation being a thing where everyone says what's on their mind and, hopefully, at the end we can agree on our current disagreements: house, custody, support. Am I safe in assuming that anything I say or admit to in the mediation will remain in the mediation and not come back to haunt me if the mediation fails and we have to go to court for a 'normal' divorce?
