Mediation as an alternative to divorce

If you're going through a divorce in California, it can be very easy to let your emotions take over. This could lead you into a protracted and expensive litigation. If you're able to arrive at an agreement, however, your divorce will likely end much sooner and you may be happier with the results.

One method of resolving divorces short of litigation is through mediation. This is an alternate dispute resolution process in which both spouses meet with a mediator. A mediator is a person who is trained in helping people to reach resolutions of their disputes.

Divorce mediators work to reduce the conflict in order to facilitate agreements between parties. You may have several areas of contention, including property division, child custody, spousal support and other associated issues. Even if your case and the positions of you and your spouse seem intractable, it's still possible to negotiate an agreement through a mediator. Sometimes, having a neutral third party might help people to navigate the negotiation process more easily so that agreements might be reached.
