I feel quite confused about how to use "toward" in a sentence , anyone can help with the sentence underneath?
He wants to be a moderator towards their divorce.

@Arafat ,
This is an improper word choice.

"He wants to be a moderator in their divorce. "
"He wants to be a moderator in their divorce proceedings. "

The use of toward is often used when something physical approaches or has adjacency or closeness.

When it's used in reference to an abstract subject or object or a non-physical indicates something is getting closer to the subject or object either in time or proximity.

As an example: "The court case is moving toward conclusion."
