It’s the mediator’s job to ensure both parties get an equal chance to state their case during mediation sessions, so no one side of the story will be dominant. If it turns out that one side is overpowering the other, the mediation session will be halted. However, it is often the case that spouses who deem themselves the ‘weaker’ of the partners, prove to be able to successfully state their case and get the result they want from mediation.
