Can mediation help my children through our divorce?

You and your spouse have decided to file for divorce, but you are both concerned about the effect your split will have on the children. As you know, a divorce can be devastating for kids. They may be heartbroken to learn that their parents no longer love each other, and they might feel like they have to take sides.
