If my husband and I agree on all the terms of our no contest divorce, do we need an attorney or can we just use a mediator?

And how do we go about getting the paperwork drawn up?

If you and your soon to be former spouse agree to the terms of your dissolution, I suggest that you consult with a paralegal to draft up what you desire in a marital dissolution agreement and order for signing and submission to the court for filing. From what you have written, you do not need to incur the expense of a mediator.
