Being a parent in California or anywhere else can be tough. However, how two parents get along with each other can play a big role in the development of their children. This is generally true whether the parents are divorced, still married or the adoptive mother and father of a child. In fact, it may play a bigger role than how involved a parent is in a child's life.
Divorce mediation can be used by California couples who are ending their marriages to resolve their issues without having to engage in contentious and expensive litigation. In many jurisdictions, mediation is a prerequisite of going to divorce court.
