In some jurisdictions the courts will order the parties to attempt to settle their differences through mediation. In this case, a mediator will assist the parties in sorting out the issues where there is dispute. Both parties should come prepared to negotiate, to make a good faith effort to resolve differences and reach a settlement.
Try to agree on small issues first before diving directly into the larger issues. Try to keep your emotions at bay and think objectively and clearly what your goals and objectives may be.
