Many marital mediators take the view that improvements in communication skills and in handling disputes are the most important result in a marital mediation. Most marital mediations do not end up with written agreements about property or other matters. The improvement in the marriage is made because of the improvement in communication.
Some marital mediators (and some clients) believe that every mediation mediation should result in a written agreement. Many marital mediators often draft written agreements for their clients where applicable, but do not see them as a necessary result or component of the process.
