My husband and I live in Massachusetts and are getting a divorce. If we decide to hire a mediator and go that route instead of court, about how long will that take? In our case, the only thing we need to settle is property division. I understand the answer probably varies, but is there some ball park number of sessions that are usually required. Also, is it kosher for us to talk about the issues outside of mediation even after we start the mediation process, or should we try to limit our discussions to those in front of the mediator? Thanks.
