Do I need to employ an advisor or representative?
If you feel unsure about representing yourself, you can employ an advisor, or ask a friend or family member for assistance and support. You need to remember that if you employ an adviser you will need to pay them – this may form part of your decision about who to seek assistance from.
Engaging an advisor does not necessarily mean they will, or need to, represent you before or during mediation.
You may need assistance at two stages: (1) preparing for the mediation meeting and (2) attending the meeting.
