Does mediation work?

1 hour
First broadcast:
Wednesday 23 February 2011

New guidelines on divorce for England and Wales have been announced - and they'll make mediation mandatory.

If it works you could avoid the courtroom altogether. But, as we all know, divorce can be extremely painful. When all you want to do is settle in court - and get your revenge - is mediation really going to work? Or is it the best way to defuse all that bitterness and get to the best possible solution?
