Divorce mediation as an option in California

While many people believe that a divorce will involve extended and bitter litigation, there is an alternative process through which they may go called divorce mediation. With mediation, a trained, neutral third party will work to facilitate the couple's reaching an agreement so they can settle their divorce without needing to go through expensive and lengthy court proceedings.

The growing popularity of divorce mediation in California

The divorce rate has slowly been decreasing over the last few years, but the number of divorces that are mediated has been growing. This is likely due to a number of factors, including that it gives people more control over the outcome of their divorce and generally lower costs. When an estranged California couple litigate their divorce, the judge has the final say over issues like asset division or spousal support.

Persuading a spouse to try divorce mediation

A California resident who is contemplating a divorce may want to pursue mediation, but the other spouse might be reluctant. There are a number of ways one spouse might persuade the other to give mediation a try. Mediation can be faster, cheaper and more private than litigation, but this alone may not be convincing.
