- Estate Planning
If you are contemplating a divorce or are involved in any type of family law dispute, you may be looking for a saner, healthier, and more amicable way to resolve it than contested litigation. Divorce Mediation as an alternate dispute resolution process for divorce and other family matters may be the answer you are looking for. As a San Diego mediation lawyer, I can guide you through the mediation process, helping you and your divorcing spouse or opposing family member reach your own negotiated agreements.
As a certified family law specialist with over 42 years of divorce and related experience, I have seen every kind of divorce and family dispute situation and know how emotionally challenging and trying they can be.
That is why I strongly recommend that you consider the mediation process, which puts you in control of the issues you are working to resolve instead of the courts. Mediation is a private and confidential process in which you and the other party agree to work through your differences outside of court to achieve a settlement or agreement that you both can live with.
In mediation, you and the other party work in a neutral and private setting. With the assistance of a third party, the mediator, you negotiate a mutually-satisfying settlement. As a San Diego mediation attorney, my job is to encourage and facilitate constructive communication between you and the other party. I can help you identify the key issues and aim for a clear agreement as to how you will deal with them. I can also help you explore possible options that will assist in resolving them, enabling you to find a way to problem-solve that will best suit your needs.
Mediation is a structured process, usually done with a certain set of rules or protocol. Because it is private and done outside the courts, there is no public record or display of what goes on. Because it is voluntary, it is less stressful and damaging to all parties and to any children who may be affected. And, because it does not revolve around court schedules, it can be done at your pace and schedule. Finally, because it is not a contested court process with opposing attorneys on both sides, it is much less time-consuming and costly.
