California couples who may be considering different routes to the dissolution of their marriage may want to investigate the possibility of the use of mediation. Mediation offers several advantages over traditional adversarial court appearances, from saving money to preventing dissent, and it has become increasingly popular in recent years.
When a California couple decides to separate or divorce, they might think they need to resolve differences regarding children, alimony or property division through the courts. However, working out these matters outside of court might save both parties money and time. A resolution with little contention may make the process smoother and could be more beneficial if there are children involved.
