Is a Santa Barbara family law mediator and facilitator the same thing?

A family law mediator and a family law facilitator are two distinct roles. While both deal with family law matters, they serve different purposes.

A mediator helps couples reach agreements through communication and compromise, while a facilitator aids self-represented individuals by providing guidance on forms and court processes.

Mediators remain neutral and do not offer legal advice, while facilitators do not act as mediators or provide legal representation. These roles have unique functions in assisting individuals involved in family law cases.
