Divorce Mediation in California
Find the Resolutions You Need Through Mediation
Divorce does not have to involve heated courtroom battles. In fact, most divorces agreements are made through negotiation between the two spouses outside of the courtroom with the help and guidance of a trained third-party mediator.
There are essentially two different kinds of divorce:
Contested Divorce: When the various terms of your divorce cannot be agreed upon or when one party does not want to divorce.
Uncontested Divorce: Occurs when both parties are in agreement regarding the need for divorce and the process by which they will go through it. They are also in agreement regarding the various terms of divorce. If a couple pursuing an uncontested divorce disagrees about something, then they can compromise to come to an agreement on their own or through mediation.
Why Choose Mediation for My Divorce?
If you are going through uncontested divorce, then you may greatly benefit from mediation:
Alternative to Courtroom Litigation – Mediation allows you to avoid trial. You will be able to speed the process along if you can agree upon the various terms of your divorce. The major benefit of this option is that the process is generally faster and, therefore, less expensive.
Better Custody & Visitation Is Likely – You may end up with better circumstances regarding custody and visitation rights than if you had to fight for these in court.
You Make the Decisions – Mediation allows you to make the decisions regarding your family, rather than turning them over to the judge.
Less Stress and Trauma – When children are involved, pursuing the option of mediation can provide for a less tense situation and may help make the transition smoother for them.
Minimal Contention – Many couples experience less animosity in their relationship and are able to behave civilly during visitation or other meetings. They are also able to keep greater privacy, rather than having their situation out in the open.
If you and your spouse choose to go this route, then you will both need to agree to pursue divorce mediation. You will also work together to select a mediator. Through this process, you can reach a full and legal divorce. It can open the doors for communication. Also, negotiations will be facilitated so that amicable terms can potentially be reached. Finding terms that you both can agree on now can also help you and your spouse to work together in the future when necessary.
