Experience In Divorce Mediation

If you are considering divorce, your biggest challenge likely rests in understanding the process. You may also be wondering how to get through it without losing what is important to you. A large part of what drives adversarial action and negative emotions in divorce is the feeling of one spouse "winning" over the other — but it doesn't have to be that way.

Although you may feel fearful, uncertain or apprehensive about the divorce process, you do have options to end your marriage fairly and amicably. Reality is that many couples are able to have a low-stress divorce that minimizes the sometimes devastating impact the process can have on children and finances. How can this be done?

Have You Considered Mediation?

Divorce mediation is one way couples can remain in control of the process by avoiding the courtroom. Through mediation, you and your spouse can talk privately about your concerns and work toward compromise in the presence of a mediator.

The mediator's role is not to take sides, but to ensure that both you and your spouse are heard in the process. When disagreements arise, a mediator can help you focus on your priorities, draft documents and explain California law as it applies to your case.

What Is The Process Like?

The biggest areas of contention in divorce are children, property and finances. You and your spouse will likely have disagreements about these things, but your mediator will guide you toward a fair outcome.

The process generally takes about six months, but this can vary based on your needs. The process may not work for everyone either. If you and your spouse have significant disagreements, it may be best to pursue separate representation from a lawyer who will represent you in court.
