Is divorce mediation a good fit for my situation?

California residents who are preparing to go through the divorce process may be interested to learn about what options may be open to them. Litigation is not always necessary when ending one's marriage, and there are ways to avoid it if both parties are willing to put some time and effort. Divorce mediation, for example, can work for most couples.

How can ex-spouses co-parent if they do not get along?

Divorce is a difficult time, and with the end of a marriage comes emotions that can make it difficult to imagine working together with your ex-spouse on any issue, but especially child custody. Despite these complex feelings and the difficulty of setting these types of emotions aside, many California parents find it beneficial to work together to co-parent their children.

Some debts outlive your marriage

What seemed practical and wise then may feel foolish now. When you and your spouse consolidated your student loans, you expected to work together to pay them off, bearing the burden as a couple. However, you did not count on a divorce and the headache of dividing assets and debts.

What To Expect From Divorce Mediation

While many people have probably heard of mediation, it may not be exactly what they pictured. For most couples going through a divorce, a divorce mediation is likely in their cards. In many states, mediation is required before a couple can proceed with litigation. Some people may think this is just another situation for negotiations to take place. A "counselor" can help talk through any differences the divorcing parties may be facing. However, this is not the case and reality of a divorce mediation.

How Mediation Can Benefit Your Divorce

Mediation: you have probably heard of this process before. Either from a friend who has gone through a divorce before or a family member who recommends utilizing this process. In any event, most attorneys will advise you to at least consider using mediation for your divorce. This is because there are many potential benefits to using this ADR ("Alternative Dispute Resolution") method. Some of them include saving you substantial time and money.
